PAKISTAN NEWS: The government will decide on additional measures for COVID-19 tomorrow

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday convened a meeting of the National Liaison Committee tomorrow to discuss the growing trend of COVID-19 infections in the country.

Sources told Geo News that the Prime Minister will be notified by the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) of the status of the coronavirus.

The development comes just hours after Planning and Development Minister Asad Umar said the government was considering additional measures to curb the growing spread of coronavirus in humans.

Speaking on Twitter, Umar said the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) has discussed other ways today to control the growing spread of COVID-19.

COVID-19 resurgence

Pakistan’s earnings rate rose to more than 4% on Sunday – the highest since August. The country recorded 1,123 new Covid-19 cases in a single day – the highest of more than three months. At least 12 people have been infected with the virus.

Additional restrictions

State officials issued several warnings a few days ago unaware of the use of Covid-19 SOPs as the second wave hit the country.

Last week, the NCOC issued new rules regarding the closure of wedding halls and supermarkets and made facial wear mandatory.

Wedding halls, top donor restaurants

Earlier this month, the NCOC said it saw wedding halls and indoor restaurants as “very devoted” to the spread of the infectious disease.

Following this, on October 9, the body released new guidelines for wedding halls, claiming that it officially restricts the number of guests and restricts activities until 10 p.m.

For indoor events, 300 guests are allowed and for outdoor events, 500 guests, the meeting will last only two hours.

The statement said that if wedding halls are found to violate SOPs it will be closed “on time” and a heavy fine will be levied.
