The next two-weeks of lockdown will be more intense,Murad Ali Shah

Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday appealed to the public once again to follow to the limitations during the lockdown adding that intense measures would be taken in the next two weeks.

“The lockdown will be more intense in the next 14 days,” CM Shah said addressing a press conference in Karachi.

The CM said that the reason all provinces have a consensus to increase the lockdown is because our fight with the deadly virus isn’t over yet.

“People should know that the danger hasn’t gone. Across Pakistan, approximately 10% results of total tests conducted have come back positive,” he said.

“If anyone thinks that the infection in Pakistan is less intense than other countries, then they are wrong,” Shah added.

It is pertinent to mention here that the federal government and the other provinces unanimously extended the lockdown till the end of April, but permitted resumption of certain businesses.

Shah mentioned that certain industries were exempted from the lockdown after a calculated analysis, adding that, these companies will provide transport to their employees and the vehicles used for this purpose will be filled only one third so that a social distancing can be maintained.
