Prime Minister Imran Khan has imputed his team for being among the first around the world to enforce smart lockdowns to curb the spread of coronavirus.

The premier took to Twitter where he shared a Bloomberg article titled Smart Lockdowns” are the future in Europe, stating that his team was amongst the first to enforce the measure.

“My team was amongst the first to enforce smart lockdowns. I am proud of it for helping me continue to navigate our country through the Covid19 crisis. InshaAllah, from now onwards if we follow SOPs we will see off the worst of this crisis,” he tweeted.

Pakistan enforced a smart lockdown almost two weeks ago when coronavirus cases in the country almost surged to the 150,000-mark.

The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) issued a list of 20 cities identified as COVID-19 hotspots across the country where smart lockdowns were forced.

Parts of the federal capital Islamabad, Peshawar, and Lahore have been sealed to stem the spread of the virus.

Moreover, areas identified in Swat sealed include Bahrain, Matta, Babuzai, Kabal, Barikot, Khariri, Gwalerai and Odigram.

Other tehsils identified by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Department include UC Qambar, Saeedoshareef, Breekot Gharbi, Quetta Sharki, Kozabandi and Madin.
