Chairman of PM Task Force on Science and Technology Professor Dr Atta-ur-Rahman has warned of imposing social restrictions again as the cases of omicron were rising.

Talking to the 24News HD TV channel on Sunday, the task force chairman has signalled that sanctions will be tightened on the growing number of omicron cases.

Dr Atta-ur-Rahman said the situation could worsen in the next three to four weeks and pressure on hospitals may also increase in the coming days.

He said if the omicron cases will escalate, restrictions on educational institutes, wedding halls and travelling will have to be tightened.
