Lahore Lockdown imposed in more areas

Amidst rising number of Coronavirus cases in Lahore, the authorities have decided to impose lockdown in more areas of the city.

According to a notification issued by the Health Department in Lahore, “smart lockdowns” with controlled entry and exit points have been imposed in 55 areas of the city.

Due to the lockdown, all types of gatherings, including social and religious ones, will be completely banned across the city.

However, medical services, pharmacies, laboratories, collection points, hospitals, and clinics will remain open 24 hours a day.

Shops selling essential items, including milk shops, meat shops, and bakeries will remain open from 7 am to 7 pm, the notification stated.

Moreover, grocery stores, general stores, flour mills, fruits, vegetable shops, and petrol pumps will remain open from 9 am to 7 pm.

According to the Health secretary, the purpose of imposing a smart lockdown is to limit the movement of people from areas most affected by the coronavirus.

“Smart lockdown in the affected areas can save more people from being infected,” the health secretary maintained.

“The virus can spread again if you are not careful. Remember that this contagious disease can be controlled by taking more precautions than before.”
