The Provincial Administrations have been asked to take immediate actions for the strict implementation of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

Serious concern was shown on the general disregard of SOPs by the masses. The mass violations of SOPs and disrespect of orders including not wearing of masks, disregard of social distancing are widely reported.

The appeal was made to citizens to once again display a good example of social behavior and follow the SOPs in letter and spirit; otherwise, strict measures will have to be taken which may result in the closure of business and restrictions on economic and social activities.

It was decided that COVID Vaccination Centers across the Country will remain closed on Sundays and national holidays.

Separately in a Tweet also, Asad Umar asked the people to be very careful as the new strain of COVID spreads faster and is more deadly.

The minister said that hospital daily admissions and the people in critical care are rising fast. He said that if SOP compliance does not improve, we will be forced to place stronger restrictions on activities.
