KARACHI (92 News) - Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Pechuho on Thursday said that the Corona restrictions will remain in place across Sindh including Karachi.

It is pertinent to mention here that the business community is protesting but the government needs to keep restrictions imposed to control COVID-19 spread.

The provincial minister also complained to citizens about non-compliance with SOPs. She also informed that the corona prevalence rate in Karachi is 11 per cent.

“We have tried to keep a balance between restrictions and business activities. But we cannot open businesses and ease restrictions on public demand,” said the health minister

"Shops throughout the province are open till 6pm. Businesses should open earlier, not at 12pm, so that they have the whole day to do business," said Dr Pechuho.

She mentioned that COVID-19 cases are once again on the rise in Sindh. The positivity ratio in Karachi is 11%, while it has declined to three to four percent across the country, she said.

"Hospitals are filling up again because people are not being careful. The situation will not be brought under control if people flout SOPs and refuse to get vaccinated," Dr Pechuho maintained.

The Sindh government also announced closure of government employees' salaries for non-vaccination of COVID-19.
