Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has been deployed at two major ferry ghats of the country to curb the exodus of homebound people and contain the coronavirus transmission.

A platoon of BGB personnel has been deployed at Mawa ferry ghat in Munshiganj district, while the another platoon of BGB personnel has been deployed at Paturia to control exodus of people at Paturia-Daulatdia ghat in Manikganj district.
