Covid-19 looming large: Yasmin calls for enforcing SoPs

Punjab Minister for Health Dr Yasmin Rashid on Friday urged the people to go for social distancing amid fears that the second wave may hit the province, once again disrupting economic and day-to-day activities.

The government brought down cases tally in Punjab after hectic efforts but a gradual increase in Covid-19 cases was witnessed during the past week. 

“We have prepared SoPs to be followed during public gatherings,” she said and appealed to the masses to refrain from attending such gatherings. 

The minister also issued directives to her staff to get enforced SoPs in educational institutes. Citing an example of the Sindh province, she said the authorities there had already imposed lockdown the province after a sharp increase in cases. “Similar scenario could emerge in Punjab and could disturb the day to day routine,” the Punjab health minister said.
