Pakistan recorded 114 more deaths due to the novel coronavirus over the last 24 hours.
According to the statistics of the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), 5,050 fresh infections were reported during the period.
As per NCOC, the national death tally hit 15,443, whereas the total number of confirmed infections in Pakistan jumped to 721,018.
The NCOC had announced various restrictions across the country a few days earlier, as the third wave of the coronavirus intensified across the country with over 5,000 testing positive for the virus on a single day, multiple times in the past few weeks or so.
In view of a surge in coronavirus cases in the country, the NCOC had also issued renewed standard operating procedures (SOPs) to contain the virus a few weeks ago, saying that these would be implemented with immediate effect.
As per the new guidelines, all businesses are only be allowed to operate five days a week, while all commercial activities will be closed by 8:00pm in areas with a positivity ratio greater than 8%.
