The chief minister pointed out that a lockdown was the only solution to curb the spread of the virus. “We have seen that in the last few days gatherings have increased and people have violated the rules of social distancing,” he said.
The areas where the virus has spread such as Malir have been closed off, Shah said. He urged people to follow the government’s instructions so that COVID-19 could be defeated.
“Your well-being is in your hands,” the minister added.
