According to the details, Met office said that the westerly wave will bring Siberian winds with a speed from 22 to above 30 kilometers per hour.

The winds in Karachi will likely to bring the minimum temperature in the metropolis as down as four to five degree Celsius.

Health officials earlier said that the novel coronavirus surging in Karachi as its current cold weather with moderate humidity is most suitable for the spread of the virus, while its dense population with millions living in slums and regularly-held “super spreading events” are other contributing factors behind the surge.
