Sindh has announced stricter coronavirus restrictions as the trend of positive cases in the province remains high.
“I wish people were actually following SOPs and had been wearing masks,” Sindh spokesperson Murtaza Wahab tweeted on Monday. “The situation is very alarming and [the] government may have no other option but to take stricter decisions if people don’t act responsibly.”
The new directives announced are:
- 20% attendance in government offices
- All schools, colleges, and universities closed
- Intercity public transport to be closed from 29th April
The decision has been taken to curb the rapid spread of the deadly virus during Ramazan and before the Eid holidays.
A meeting headed by Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah is underway at the CM House. The government will hold a press conference later in the day.
In the last 24 hours, Pakistan has reported 4,825 new coronavirus cases while 70 people succumbed to the deadly virus. The number of patients in hospitals has increased and the country is using 90% of its oxygen supply.
On Sunday, Sindh Local Government Minister Nasir Hussain Shah wrote a letter to the Federal Interior Ministry requesting deployment of army in the province for SOP implementation.
