People’s cooperation required for success of lifting of lockdown


Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz has said people’s cooperation is required for the success of lifting of lockdown.

In a tweet, he said Standard Operating Procedures for various businesses will have to be implemented strictly. He said we will have to impose lockdown again if precautionary measures are not observed. He said coronavirus pandemic is a common issue, which can be faced with unity. 

The Minister said gradual easing of lockdown shows government’s approach of compassion for weaker segments of society. He said this will also help support small businesses in the country. He said a long-term lockdown could ruin employment of people involved in small businesses. He said economic activities and people’s health should go side by side.
