Pakistan government minister Asad Umar has also warned people by tweeting many. He has said that the people who come from abroad will be divided into three categories.
Partial Lockdown in Pakistan: Pakistan has announced a partial lockdown of eight days ahead of the Eid al-Fitr festival to be celebrated next week. Non-essential business and tourism sites will be closed from May 8-16 in the country, with travel in any part will be banned. At present, this country is facing the third wave of Covid Pandemic. In April itself, more than one lakh 40 thousand cases of infection have been found and 3 thousand people have died.
Officials have warned giving the example of India and have said that it is necessary to ban or else the situation will be like India. According to Pakistan’s Health Ministry, 4,109 new cases have been reported on Saturday. However the actual number is being told even more, which is not included in the figures (Pakistan Coronairus Cases). Under partial lockdown, only taxis, trains and private vehicles will be allowed in vehicles moving between cities and regions, that too in limited numbers.
Infection can spread on Eid
Dr. Faizal Sultan, Advisor to Prime Minister Imran Khan on health matters, had earlier told on Friday that officials are aware that this week people will gather with the family to celebrate Eid, which can spread the infection. The country is facing a difficult phase at this time. He said that there are less signs of stability in the cases and if the measures are not adopted then they can increase. While the local administration is imposing sanctions to prevent virus infection, the Prime Minister last month opposed a nationwide lockdown as it could harm the economy.
Asad Umar also warned
Pakistan government minister Asad Umar has also warned people on Saturday by tweeting many. He has said that those who come from abroad will be divided into three categories, who are less threatened, who do not need to undergo a COVID test and who are to be prevented from entering Pakistan. At this time Pakistan itself is also included in the Red List traveling to Britain (Partial Lockdown in Pakistan). Which means that if someone goes there from Pakistan, then they will have to pay to be quarantined in the hotel.
