School Holidays in Sindh

Chinese Consul General in Karachi, Li Bijian, recommended authorities to extend the school holidays in Sindh and stop huge gatherings in the city amid an increase in coronavirus cases.

“The local Government of Sindh shall be advised to take more strong preventive measures including calling off big gatherings and extension of the closing of the schools to save more lives,” Li tweeted

The envoy urged the Sindh government to take the action as the spread of novel coronavirus was quick.

Karachi has been the most affected city so far, with 15 of the total 20 confirmed cases.



The advice from the Chinese envoy came a day after Sindh Health Department decided to recommend extension in holidays for a long period and end on large public gatherings like PSL.

The Sindh government had previously ordered to close all educational institutes till March 13 after the emergence of 2 new coronavirus cases on March 1.

The government of Sindh on Tuesday announced that PSL matches would be held in the city according to the schedule.

All matches due to be held at the National Stadium would take place as per the schedule, Sindh Information Minister Nasir Hussain Shah said, during a press conference at the National stadium.
