Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Sunday that the third wave of the coronavirus was extremely dangerous compared to the previous two waves, warning that his government would be forced to impose major restrictions if people did not follow standard operating procedures (SOPs). ).

Khan, who came out positive last month about the disease that is now developing in the country, was addressing the nation before sitting down for a live question-and-answer session, the second such interaction with the masses in recent months.

So far we have protected our people, we are not imposing blockade (or closure) of our factories. We are only setting small restrictions so that this wave does not spread rapidly. “But if this spreads, it will have a very negative impact and we will be forced to take steps,” he said.

He said people were not taking precautions while going public, which could have dangerous implications and speed up the spread of the virus.

He defended his government from imposing a stalled blockade and instead pursuing a policy of intelligent blocking, saying closing the economy would increase financial hardship.

He said no one was sure how long the third wave would last, but its impact could be mitigated by wearing masks.

Prime Minister Khan, 68, tested positive for the virus on March 20. His wife Bushra Bibi also tested positive for the coronavirus the same day. One week later, President Arif Alvi and Defense Minister Pervez Khattak also came out positive.

Meanwhile, the National Center for Command and Operation (NCOC) after reviewing the situation across the country, stopped intercity transport for two days a week (Saturday and Sunday) from 10 to 25 April. But goods, merchandise, medical services and other emergency services will be exempt from the ban.

Pakistan registered 5,020 new cases in the last 24 hours, bringing the national number to 687,908. Another 81 people died and with it the number of deaths from COVID-19 reached 14,778.

Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood said the NCOC would meet on April 6 to decide on the opening of the schools.

The NCOC had issued instructions for Ramadan, barring people older than 50 and teenagers from entering the mosque for prayer.
