As the government of Pakistan lifted the lockdown in the country, the rate of coronavirus cases is increasing at an incredibly agile rate. A day before yesterday, over 4600 people were reported who contracted the COVID 19. .
This rapid surge in corona cases compelled the government of Sindh to take such kind of measures as it would take off some burden from the health care department of the province. The doctors were against the partial relief of lockdown as they could see the catastrophe coming. A majority of business owners are not giving any regard to the SOPs that the government had announced in April. Besides the increase in the number of cases, the death rate is also rising to an alarming rate. On the brighter side, more than 30,000 people have completely recovered from the virus and have been discharged.
