NCOC warns danger of Delta variant spreading in country during Eidul Azha
July 11, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has warned the danger of Delta variant spreading in the country during upcoming event of Eidul Azha on Sunday.

The NCOC has decided to tighten Covid-19 restrictions after the infection rate across the country rose above 4 per cent. With Eidul Azha inching closer, the forum instructed all provinces to ensure implementation of precautionary measures in high-risk areas over surfacing case of Delta variant.

Special teams have been formed for this purpose. The government has, on the other hand, made coronavirus vaccination mandatory for everyone. People won’t be allowed inside gyms, restaurants, hotels, and cinemas without showing their immunisation certificates.

Earlier this week, NCOC chief Asad Umar warned that the early signs of a fourth coronavirus wave have started showing.

“Two weeks back I had tweeted that our artificial intelligence models are showing possible emergence of a fourth wave. Now there are clear early signs of the fourth wave starting,” he said.

Poor SOP compliance, the spread of variants, including the Delta variant, are the main causes for the rise in cases. The minister has warned that if the owners of these facilities do not show responsibility and ensure compliance, there will be no choice but to shut them down.
