Abstract

The novel coronavirus-2 (nCoV-2) is the pathogen responsible for the COVID-19 infection that has evolved into a pandemic, spreading worldwide in more than 210 countries, affecting hundreds of millions, and forcing populations to be put under lockdowns to stop the spread of the virus. This article provides a brief outlook of the COVID-19 and lockdown situation in Bangladesh, with particular focus on the second bloom of the pandemic since March 2021. With a series of hard and relaxed lockdowns, the country has taken varying stances in combating the virus, with dubious efficacy. The spread of the virus and role of lockdowns in suppressing it has been explored briefly to find the necessity and current situation of lockdown in Bangladesh in the face of the second bloom. The article also highlights the role of the government as well as public perception and their role in it, providing some suggestions to help navigate the crisis.
