In view of this seriousness, the government is being considered at the national level to impose a strict curfew on Wednesday. According to sources, tough decisions regarding citizens’ lives and health have become inevitable.
Citizens can be restricted to homes only by imposing a curfew, however, according to sources, the curfew may allow citizens to move out of their homes at a very urgent and emergency level.

If the citizens still refuse to move out of the houses, then the government of Sindh may announce a curfew from Wednesday across the province, after which no such relaxation will be allowed.
