Apparently, the return journey from the lockdown environment of Covid 19 to normal life will start in two and a half weeks in the beloved homeland, but all activities will be subject to precautionary requirements. Restrictions at the local, provincial or national levels will be tightened again if the situation shows signs of turmoil due to negligence or any other reason. The details of this brief are the decision of the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) which was announced after reviewing the Corona situation across the country. It is clear from the notification that the working hours of shopping malls and parks across the country will end on March 15. Marriage halls will be allowed to go to shrines in addition to ceremonies, cinema halls will be opened. The option of working from home for 50% of the staff in the offices will be abolished. All the staff members will have to ensure attendance. From March 15, sitting inside hotels will be allowed to eat, but will be reviewed on March 10. The NCOC says that from a health point of view, local body and Kent Board elections can be planned by the Election Commission by the end of May-June 2021. The National Command and Operations Center has increased the number of spectators in PSL pool matches by 20%
It has also been allowed to increase it to 50%, while 100% spectators will be allowed to participate in play-off matches with strict coveted SOPs. This will allow more spectators to sit in the stadium and watch the match. As far as Corona’s precautionary measures are concerned, they need to be enforced from all over the world by the time Corona is eliminated. Remember and keep reminding others. Following the decision of the NCOC, if the wheel of social and economic life is fully turned, it will not only help in overcoming many difficulties of ordinary workers, business circles and other oppressed people, but also in the national economy. Improvements are expected. It is a special grace of Allah Almighty on the dear homeland that there has not been as much damage from Corona as has happened in many countries including USA and UK. This can only be done by keeping the precautionary requirements in mind so as to avoid a new wave like in the past. According to the World Health Organization, 2.4 million people worldwide were infected with corona last week. That is 11 percent less than the number of people affected by the epidemic in the previous week. The death toll from the pandemic has dropped since the introduction of the corona vaccine around the world. The global death toll last week was about 66,000, down 20 percent from the previous week. According to the National Command and Operations Center in Watan Aziz, 50 people died on Wednesday. 1196 new cases were reported after which the total number of cases increased to 574,850 out of which 23,665 are active cases. So far, a total of 539,207 patients have recovered. There is a need to strictly observe the precautionary requirements in all places from holy places to offices, factories, business centers and people of every category should register themselves for the vaccine so that it is their turn to be vaccinated. ۔ Through vaccines and precautions, we will meet the requirements of personal protection as well as the duty to take the beloved homeland out of challenges.
