Karachi lockdown

Presently, Coronavirus is knocking at our door and we have confirmed Corona patients in Karachi. So the government has decided to shutdown the whole city post midnight on Sunday which is the best prevention to stop the spreading of epidemic Coronavirus. Only vegetables, grocery stores and medical stores are allowed to stay open from 8am to 8pm. Congregational prayers are also banned in the city. With everyday passing, the Sindh government is furthering the lockdown restrictions for the citizens as the number of coronavirus cases are increasing day by day. On Friday, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said that all grocery stores and shops across the province will be closed by 5pm instead of 8pm. He also has said that previously that he has no choice but to opt for a province-wide lockdown. “We are making tough decisions in the best interest of the people,” he said. CM Murad had also urged the masses to maintain social distancing and avoid public places until absolutely necessary.
