Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday urged all to build a ‘wall of awareness’ to curb the spread of Sars-CoV-2, the new coronavirus responsible for the global respiratory illness.

He made the call while talking to the officials of Bangladesh Road Transport Cooperation (BRTC) via video conferencing from his official residence in the capital.

Quader, also Awami League general secretary, said the public transport service began Monday as transport owners and workers have agreed to comply with health and safety rules.

On the first day, health guidelines were followed in most of the cases while there were also allegations of violation of the rules, he added.
