Sindh may take strict decisions Thursday if coronavirus SOPs not followed: Murad


KARACHI:Sindh has decided to endorse the decision taken by the National Command and Operation Center on the relaxation of certain specific non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) notified on May 15. This was announced by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah while presiding over a meeting of the Provincial Task Force on Coronavirus at CM House on Monday. The province will, however, review the impact of COVID-19 in the post Eid scenario on Thursday and may take strict decisions if the standard operational procedures are not followed or a spike in the cases is reported, the CM said.  At the outset of the meeting, the task force endorsed relaxation in certain specific NPIs announced by the NCOC on May 15. It was decided, however, that the forum will again review its decision next Thursday by evaluating the impact of the virus in the post Eid scenario.  “If the SOPs are not followed in true letter and spirit the government would take strict action and may withdraw the relaxation given to the NPIs,” the chief minister warned. The CM commented that this is not a good situation. “We have to save our valuable lives by taking necessary measures,” he said and added it would be possible when people would follow SOPs and get themselves vaccinated.
