DHAKA - A leading Bangladeshi trade unionist, who began her working life in a clothing factory at the age of 11, says brands and factory owners should be held responsible if garment workers returning to work die of coronavirus.

More than 1,100 garment factories have now reopened in Bangladesh - despite an ongoing lockdown to limit the spread of the virus - and fears have been raised that not enough is being doing to protect workers from the virus.

Nazma Akter, now one of Bangladesh's foremost labour leaders who is the founder and president of Sommilito Garment Sramik Federation, said that the majority of brands had failed to act responsibily in the COVID-19 pandemic.
