Again Strict lock-down in Punjab? WHO has sounded the Alarm

World Health Organisation (WHO) Demands Two weeks strict lock-down in Punjab

Lahore: Outbreak of Coronavirus reaches alarming extent, World Health Organisation sounds alarm bell, WHO calls measures taken to deal with Corona unsatisfactory, WHO Country Head post a letter to Provincial Health Minister Dr. Yasmeen Rashid, suggested a strict lock-down for Two weeks.

The World Health Organization is deeply concerned about the rapid increase in deaths and new cases from the corona. A letter has been sent to the Provincial Minister of Health, Dr. Yasmeen Rashid, by the World Health Organization's Country Head, Dr. Palitha Mahipala. Calling the rapid spread of the Corona epidemic dangerous, it said that the required conditions were not taken into account when easing the lock-down to prevent corona.
The letter said that the situation was such that the lock-down had opened without ensuring all precautionary measures, including controlling the spread of corona, and that the rate of corona-positive patients had reached an alarming 24%.
The letter said diagnostic and treatment facilities were inadequate. There are only 751 ventilators available for serious patients which is very scarce. According to the letter, with the end of the lock-down, 4,000 new cases are coming to light every day, which is a dangerous situation.
Punjab health department has warned of a second wave of coronavirus in the province due to a lack of precautionary measures adopted by the masses.

The warning was issued by the Primary and Secondary Healthcare department to the divisional commissioners and regional police officers (RPOs) on Saturday.

It said that lack of seriousness of the masses has raised chances of another wave of the infection as it has been witnessed that no standard operating procedures (SOPs) have been followed at business centers, shopping malls, and other public places across the province.

It has not been implemented on SS and PEs but it can be regretted and in this regard, the official movements are directed that it is a complete process of implementation.
the number of coronavirus cases in the country has dropped sharply since June this year, making it easier for the government to restrict movement across the country.
According to the latest figures provided by the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), nine more people died due to coronavirus-related complications in the past 24 hours, pushing the death toll from the disease in the country to 6,162.

As many as 23,722 more samples were tested over the previous 24 hours, taking the total number of tests conducted across the country thus far to more than 2.2 million.

Thus far, 125,632 cases have been detected in Sindh, 95,203 in Punjab, 35,091 in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, 12,144 in Balochistan, 15,346 in Islamabad, 2,179 in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and 2,452 in Gilgit-Baltistan.

The WHO has proposed two weeks of severe lock-downs, two weeks of business, reopening of mobility, and an increase in daily diagnostic tests to 50,000 to prevent corona.
Coronavirus, on the other hand, made it an easy target for Pakistani citizens. According to data released by the National Command and Operations Center, 107 more people died in the country from Corona, bringing the total death toll to 2,171, while the number of patients rose to 107,845 after new cases emerged.
