Lockdown in major Pakistan cities still an option: PM’s aide

Islamabad (HRNW)  PM’s aide on health Dr Faisal Sultan said on Wednesday that the option to impose a lockdown in major Pakistan cities wasn’t off the table.

“All the options are always on the table in national decision-making and it is possible that we will have to do that,” Dr Faisal told  when asked if the government was considering imposing a lockdown.

He said the government needs cooperation of the masses to tackle the situation.

Pakistan is currently facing a third wave of coronavirus infections, which officials say is more dangerous than the previous two.

Approximately 600 coronavirus patients are being admitted to hospitals every day in Pakistan, National Command and Operation Centre’s chief Asad Umar said Wednesday.
