Spokesperson of Sindh Government Murtaza Wahab Siddiqui has posted on Twitter that the provincial government has decided to write to National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to block mobile sims of people who refuse to get vaccinated.
“Sindh Govt has decided to write to NCOC & PTA that mobile sims of unvaccinated people should be blocked,” Murtaza wrote on Twitter.
The decision was taken in the light of the growing concerns about impending fourth wave of Covid infection.
Sindh is the province worst affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. It has so far reported the most number of cases (362,182) in the country, followed by Punjab (351,707), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (141,359), Islamabad (85,230), Balochistan (29,357), Azad Jammu and Kashmir (22,592) and Gilgit-Baltistan (7,607).
