About 30 people, including 28 children, have died of cold-related diseases in the last 11 days in northern Bangladesh as cold wave is sweeping over northern and central part of the south Asian country, local English newspaper New Age reported Monday.

It said some parts of Bangladesh were the hardest hit with temperatures plummeting as low as 6 degrees Celsius.

Quoting meteorologist Sanaul Haque, the English daily said the cold wave may continue for another day.
