DHAKA The number of garment workers testing positive for COVID-19 appears to be increasing - raising fears that factories may have to close again to limit the spread of the pandemic.

It comes after eight more garment workers tested positive for the virus on the same day in the Savar district of Dhaka, bringing the total number of infected readymade garment (RMG) workers in the district to 20.

Bangladesh's health minister Zahid Maleque warned a recent inter-ministerial meeting of stakeholders from across the country’s industry that factories might be forced to close down again if infections started to rise at a significant rate.
