Pakistan’s NCOC lifts all Covid limitations

On Wednesday, the NCOC announced the relaxation of all Covid-19 restrictions across Pakistan.

NCOC chief Asad Umar, who is also the Federal Minister for Planning and Development, announced the news.

Because the coronavirus is still there, the vaccination obligation will remain in force. Lifting the prohibition may increase instances, but the government may take action again.

Due to widespread public compliance with NCOC standards, all prohibitions on weddings, markets, bazaars and outdoor events, sports activities and religious meetings will be eliminated.

The NCOC chief explained that the illness spread and daily Covid-19 cases have slowed, making it safe to return to normalcy.

Umar stated at the briefing that the number of critical care patients has decreased since October 2020.

In total, 87 percent of the eligible population has received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, with 70 percent having received all three doses.

He stated that the country must return to normalcy because the pandemic appears to be a daily occurrence.

The NCOC chairperson tweeted that unvaccinated persons should get both vaccines to “avoid all restrictions”.

The NCOC reported that Pakistan has seen 493 new Covid cases in the last 24 hours, bringing the overall positive rate to 1.42 percent.

It also said four individuals had died from the infection and 567 were in critical condition.
