LAHORE (92 News) – Punjab Minister for Health Dr Yasmin Rashid has said that Lahore’s 81 hotspot areas will be closed for 15 days on Tuesday night. Addressing a press conference on Monday, she said that Lahore city is becoming a hub of coronavirus. She said that the areas to be closed include Shahdra, Walled City, Mozzang, Harbanspura, Gulberg, Cantt, Shadbagh, Nishtar Town and Iqbal Town. “We are imposing restrictions in the areas where innumerable cases of coronavirus have been reported,” she said. The minister said that China had completely controlled coronavirus, but a new wave of the epidemic seemed to be surging there. “People compare us with New Zealand which has a half of the population of Lahore. It was easy to control to the pandemic there,” she added. She said that it is very difficult to control coronavirus in a populous country like Pakistan. “If we compare Pakistan with India, Pakistan is better.” Yasmin Rashid said that this is a disease. “It is an epidemic and we should try to control the epidemic,” she added.
