Planning Minister Asad Umar has said he hopes the nation will show the positive discipline as before by taking health and precautionary guidelines and following standard operating procedures (SOPs) as the country completes 100 days of Coronavirus infections.
Speaking to a press conference at the National Command and Operation Centre, Asad Umar appealed to leaders of markets across the country to follow SOPs.
“I appeal to all people to show the same discipline as before. For several weeks we saw people showing discipline to quite an extent and following SOPs but it was set aside in last week before Eid.”
He warned people not to forward unverified messages on WhatsApp saying that they do not do anyone a favour rather than creating panic.
He thanked frontline workers including healthcare workers, policemen and staff at the information ministry for their services.
On the other hand, Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Health Services Dr. Zafar Mirza has emphasized the need for behavioral change through ensuring compliance of SOPs to battle against deadly Coronavirus disease.
