Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) has issued an alert at all ports -- land, air and sea -- for combating the spread of monkeypox in the country.
The health alert was issued in a circular yesterday, signed by Prof Nazmul Islam, Director (Disease Control) at the Directorate General of Health Services.
According to the BBC, more than 80 cases of monkeypox have been confirmed in at least 12 countries.
The World Health Organization has said another 50 suspected cases are being investigated - without naming any countries - and warned that more cases are likely to be reported.
Infections have been confirmed in nine European countries, as well as the USA, Canada and Australia.
Monkeypox is most common in remote parts of Central and West Africa.
It is a rare viral infection which is usually mild and from which most people recover in a few weeks, according to the UK's National Health Service.
There is no specific vaccine for monkeypox, but a smallpox jab offers 85% protection since the two viruses are quite similar.
