No lockdown for now, follow coronavirus SOPs, PM Imran Khan urges

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s government has decided against implementing a full lockdown across the country, but Prime Minister Imran Khan has urged the public to follow coronavirus standard operating procedures to avoid a “complete lockdown”.

PM Khan addressed the nation after chairing an important meeting of the National Coordination Committee (NCC) Friday afternoon to give an update on the new coronavirus restrictions as the country battles the third wave of the virus.

It was expected that a lockdown would be imposed in cities where the positivity ratio is above 10%.

The premier, however, announced that a lockdown would not be implemented for now as it will affect the working class and their businesses.
