Punjab Law and Cooperatives Minister Raja Basharat in his message to the people regarding the Covid lockdown to be implemented since 8th May, said on Saturday that according to the National Command Operation Center (NCOC), the next 15 to 20 days are very important in terms of spread of Corona pandemic.
He said, “In view of this fear, the government has imposed a complete lockdown in Punjab province from May 08, till May 16.”
Addressing the people, he said that during the lockdown, we have to decide whether to defeat Corona as in last year or create the worst situation in the country like that in India.
He said that the current dangerous situation demanded that the citizens should fully implement the government directives and SOPs to control the Corona pandemic and cooperate with the deployed police and Pakistan Army in this regard.
The law minister added that all citizens should realize their responsibility and protect themselves as well as others from the Corona by following preventive measures effectively.
“If we are not careful now, everyone may suffer irreparable damage in the days to come,” he warned
