ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will address the nation today regarding the lockdown situation on Eid-ul-Azha.
The prime minister will also discuss the current coronavirus situation in the country and the strategies adopted by the federal government to control the spread of the infectious disease.
The premier will instruct people to limit their travel activities on Eid. He will also consult the experts of the concerned institutions before the address. In this regard, the Prime Minister has convened a meeting at 3 pm today.
It is pertinent to remember that with the implementation of smart lockdown, the country’s coronavirus cases have been declined significantly.
The number of confirmed coronavirus cases has surged to 272,619 in Pakistan, while the death toll stands at 5,842.
Pakistan’s daily coronavirus tally continued to fall, as the country recorded few new cases over the past 24 hours, the lowest single-day sum since May.
However, health experts cautioned that a sharp fall in the number of COVID-19 cases could be the result of fewer tests. Neighboring India, hardest hit by the virus in the region, is currently doing 15 times more tests daily than Pakistan.
