Cinema halls across Bangladesh closed until April 2 amid fears of a coronavirus


The decision came after a meeting of the Bangladesh Film Exhibitors Association at the Film Development Corporation or FDC on Monday, said Mia Alauddin, the association’s adviser.

Schools and training centers across the country have also been closed after the number of confirmed cases of the virus rose to eight on Monday.

The Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research urged citizens to avoid large concentrations as a precaution.
