Dr. Faisal Sultan, Special Assistant for Health, said that the second wave of corona virus has gradually started in Pakistan. To deal with the second wave, SOPs will have to be strictly enforced. By taking precautions, we can deal with another wave of corona.
It should be noted that the dangerous coronavirus outbreak from China also spread in Pakistan. However, Pakistan overcame to some extent. All departments were opened under condition to implement SOPs. However, SOPs are constantly being ignored by the public due to which, there is a risk of further spread of Corona.
To curb the rising number of cases of Corona virus, the National Command and Operations Center has decided to close shopping malls, shops and markets across the country at 10 pm.
According to sources, all wedding halls and restaurants across the country will also be closed at 10 pm as per the orders issued by the National Command and Operations Center after the spread of Corona in Pakistan accelerated.
