It is pertinent to mention here that it was also stated at the last NCOC meeting that the number of Corona victims and deaths is increasing across the country. All Chief Secretaries have been directed to strictly implement SOPs. That being said, violations of SOPs will be dealt with severely. Attention should be paid to high risk sectors like transport, markets, wedding halls, restaurants and public gatherings. The use of masks and social distance should be ensured. The administration should take immediate action on the violation of Corona SOPs.
It should be noted that the dangerous corona virus outbreak from China also spread in Pakistan. All the departments have been opened under SOPs, but SOPs are being ignored by the people. Due to which there is a risk of further spread of corona.
On the other hand, the political opposition are manipulating the situation for personal gains. No attention is being paid to COVID-19 SOPs in rallies and gatherings, there is a risk of corona spreading even from their public meetings.
The NCOC has stressed that parents and teachers pay special attention to the following issues when sending their children to school. Send children to school wearing masks, even if it’s a cloth mask. If the child has a cough or symptoms of the disease, do not send them to school at all, if the condition is worse, the child should be tested immediately. The school should be informed in case of positive.
