Single day count of coronavirus cases in Pakistan was reported to be below 4,000 for the first time in a month, apparently due to firmer enforcement of SOPs.
However, Information Minister Fawad Chauhdry said that Covid-19 SOPs were not fully being implemented in Karachi. He said that the curbs were being followed in the country except in Karachi. The minister further said that if this failure continues, the rest of the country might be affected.
Corresponding to the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), 3,377 new Covid-19 cases were registered in the country in the past 24 hours, which is the lowest count for the first time since April 5. Earlier, NCOC Chairman and Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar had said that utilization of Pakistan Army troops to execute Covid-19 SOPs was working well. Frequent warnings are being issued against SOPs violations, which seems to be working.
