Murad Ali Shah said that the pandemic would spread but we can stop it and it is not under complete control yet, we tried to control the pandemic to some extent but it is difficult to fully control until the vaccine arrives.

He said that coronavirus testing in Sindh is double that of other provinces but I am not satisfied with the testing that is going on in Sindh now and, we are announcing our victory ahead of time.

The Chief Minister Sindh said that the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) has not met for a long time, we have 11268 beds, we have done our best but are not satisfied yet, people will get tested and If we are under pressure, we will increase our capacity.

Referring to the locust issue, Murad Ali Shah said that an institution called National Locust Control Service has been set up by the Prime Minister. The locust problem started last year and I myself had visited the locust infested places.
