Taking action against the violation of preventive measures of coronavirus SOPs, the district administration reviewed Korangi’s industrial area on the direction of the deputy commissioner. After checking two factories, the Korangi assistant commissioner sealed industrial units for filling their transport vehicles with workers. These factories are related to pharmaceuticals. All of them are situated on Korangi Industrial Road. Meanwhile, one tea company was also sealed due to the breaching rules and regulations of virus pandemic. According to Sindh government spokesperson Murtaza Wahab, the operations of the factories were suspended for not maintaining social distancing between workers in transport vehicles. The government had previously instructed the companies it allowed to resume operations to ensure only one third of the vehicles are filled.
