Eidul Adha should be in a ‘closed, limited’ environment: Dr Faisal Sultan

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Dr Faisal Sultan Thursday said the upcoming Eid-ul-Adha festival will be in a “limited, closed” environment, hinting at more restrictions to curb the virus spread amid fears of fourth wave.

When asked whether Eid-ul-Adha in Pakistan will be observed in a lockdown-type situation, the minister responded by saying that the festival should be celebrated in a “limited, closed” environment.

He spoke about the new Delta variant of the coronavirus, saying that the mutations in each new variant of the virus make it very easy to “jump from one person to another”.

“This variant is spreading at a pace of 50-60%,” he said.

Speaking about the importance of the coronavirus vaccines, Dr Sultan said the present COVID-19 vaccines work on all types of variants of the virus.
