BGMEA President Dr. Rubana Haque said on Thursday said the whole world is in turmoil by the coronavirus, resulting in the decline of consumer demand worldwide under such circumstances. On the other hand, the work of the garment factory has also decreased by 55 percent. In such a situation, workers will be laid off or trimmed from June. 

She made the remarks at a virtual press conference on the occasion of the inauguration of the country’s first State of the Art COVID-19 lab to test coronavirus for workers.

So far 264 garment workers have been infected with the coronavirus. Entrepreneurs are bearing the cost of all kinds of treatment for these workers, said BGMEA President Rubana Haque, in response to a query.
