Pakistan Warns Of New Lockdown As Covid-19 Cases Surge

On Wednesday, Pakistan’s top body warned citizens that strict measures, including lockdown, could be initiated to contain the infection if people don’t stop violating government guidelines, as the country”s COVID-19 mortality rate increased by 140 per cent compared to past few weeks.

In its statement the body said: “The National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) is closely monitoring the situation. If there is no improvement in SOPs compliance observed, NCOC will have no choice but to revert to strict measures leading to re-closures of services.”

During a special session of the NCOC to monitor an increase in cases, the body led by Minister for Planning Asad Umar was informed that there is a clear resurgence of the virus while deaths are also increasing. All chief secretaries were directed to strictly implement standard operating procedures (SOPs), Geo TV reported, citing the statement.

It said: “Strict punitive actions on SOP violations will be initiated, adding that wearing of face masks and social distancing must be ensured.”

The NCOC statement comes a day after Umar said that the COVID-19 mortality rate in Pakistan has increased by 140 per cent in the last week and warned the public against ignoring the safety protocols.

Meanwhile, the Cabinet has expressed serious concern over the increase in coronavirus cases in the country and asked people to take necessary precautions against the expected second wave of the pandemic.
