NCOC orders crackdown against restaurants, marriage halls violating coronavirus SOPS

The National Command Operation Center (NCOC) ordered on Friday a crackdown against those restaurants and marriage halls violating coronavirus Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs).

In a tweet today, Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar said that indoor restaurants and marriage halls are emerging as high contributors to coronavirus spread.

He further said that the NCOC has directed all provinces and federating units to crack down on SOPs violations in these places.

“We must not allow irresponsible behaviour of some to put the health of everyone at risk,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, in Sindh, local authorities sealed as many as 61 restaurants and four marriage halls. A smart lockdown has also been imposed in several areas in Karachi for two weeks.

In the past 24 hours, Pakistan reported 625 positive cases and 15 deaths.
