Easing of lockdown proposed

06 May 2020 / Pakistan

Pakistan’s Federal Cabinet has approved the gradual easing lockdown restrictions in the country gradually after 9 May.

It is focusing on open earning facilities to workers and daily wage earners provided that strict implementation of the coronavirus-related preventive measures suggested by the government is ensured.

The National Command and Operation Center has proposed multiple recommendations to ease lockdown restrictions, which may include the opening of inter-provincial public transportation with proper implementation of SOPs, opening phase-II of the construction sector and reopening of retail outlets.

The final decision yet to be taken.
