Covid-19: 10 million mobile subscribers left Dhaka- Director of NTMC

About 10 million mobile subscribers left the capital after the government declared a 10-day general holiday to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the country from March 26.

Brig Gen Ziaul Ahsan, director, National Telecom Monitoring Centre (NTMC), said 1.6 million of them are Banglalink subscribers, 4.6 million Grameenphone, 3.5 million Robi, and 250,000 Teletalk users, as reported by UNB.

As the mobile users left Dhaka, their relatives and house helps also went to their villages. So, the total number of people who left the capital might be 15 to 20 million, he added.
