GUSH HOUR..... A busy waterway is filled with boats and their passengers in the morning commute as they try to pass on a river in Bangladesh. <br />
<br />
Azim Khan Ronnie pictured the boats on the Buriganga River in Bangladesh as millions of commuters attempt to cross the river daily to get to their workplace in the city of Dhaka.  The Bangladeshi capital is one of the most densely populated in the world and home to around 19 million people.<br />
<br />
Azim said "The waterway is quite busy in the morning as people try to get to the office and to work on time.  Some wear masks, but people don't see Covid-19 as an issue here anymore but Covid cases are increasing day by day quite rapidly."<br />
<br />
"Boats are the only way to cross this waterway so people pass rivers with these boats even with the risk of catching Covid.   Our country has not been shutdown like in the UK but has many restrictions in place to reduce the spread of Covid-19 but sadly people here can't maintain it." <br />
