Law enforcement agencies and district administrations on Thursday sealed COVID-19 hotspots in Karachi on Commissioner Iftikhar Shallwani’s orders amid rising virus cases in some areas.

The Rangers and police sealed hotspots in 43 union councils of the city and put water tankers and tents at entrance and exit points of these areas to restrict people’s movement.

Announcements were also made from mosques, urging people to stay indoors. The authorities have also shut down all shops and public and private transport in the vicinity of these areas. Police have also warned the lockdown violators of legal action.
