Federal Minister for planning Asad Umar said on Monday that a meeting for the National Coordination Committee has been called to discuss additional measures to overcome the increasing coronavirus cases.
As per the details, Asad Umar took to Twitter and said that the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) discussed additional measures today to control the rising spread of COVID-19.
“Recommendations will be tabled in the NCC being called for tomorrow,” he continued. “Need to take immediate measures which have the most impact on disease spread without curtailing economic activity.”
It should be remembered that Pakistan reported 1,123 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours, the highest in over three months. On the other hand, 12 patients lost the battle against the contagious virus.
Federal authorities have issued several warnings in the last few days on the ignorance towards following coronavirus SOPs after the country faces the second wave.
NCOC issued new rules regarding the closure of wedding halls and shopping malls.
Umar said in a tweet, “NCOC has tightened restrictions on some high-risk public activities but the rising spread of the disease can only be controlled if people believe in the need for precautions.”
