Govt considers resuming sports under strict health safety measures

The government is thinking about resuming sport activities taking strict health safety measures under the ‘guidance of the health ministry’.

State Minister for Youth and Sports Zahid Ahsan Russell hinted at this development in an emergency meeting at the ministry on Thursday, reports bdnews24.com.

“We want to resume the domestic games which require no physical contact… The safety of the players is of utmost importance to us,” he was quoted as saying in a media statement from the ministry.

 “We will discuss this with the health and family welfare ministry next week,” he added.

The sports ministry is also making plans to prepare the archers and shooters for next year’s Olympic Games.

Bangladesh suspended all sporting activities indefinitely on April 4 in an effort to limit the spread of the pandemic.
