ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Army troops have come into action to assist local administration in the federal capital for implementation of coronavirus SOPs as country battles with third wave of the pandemic.

A number of videos circulating on social media show army personnel visiting various areas along with Islamabad police to ensure implementation of SOPs.
