The National Technical Advisory Committee (NTAC) on Covid-19 has recommended banning travellers from the countries, where new coronavirus variant Omicron has been detected.
The committee made a set of recommendations at its 48th meeting on Sunday.
Travellers having record of visiting the Omicron infected countries will have to stay in 14-day institutional quarantine upon arrival in Bangladesh. They must be isolated if test positive for Covid-19, the committee said.
The committee also advised to strengthen the healthcare systems and limit gatherings at political, social and religious programmes.
