Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday addressed the nation and appealed to them to strictly follow the COVID-19 SOPs amid the third wave of the virus in the country.
“The third peak (of coronavirus) is more intense than the previous two peaks […] firstly we have to wear a mask,” the PM continued.
The premier once again emphasised that the complete lockdown was not a solution. “We do not have resources to impose (nationwide) lockdown [..] feed the people and take care of them,” he added.
The PM also admitted that he had not followed the precautions during the Senate election due to which he contracted the virus.
There is a worldwide shortage of vaccines and those promised to Pakistan have been delayed because there are shortages in the countries that manufacture them, he explained.
The premier further stressed that the people should avoid gatherings such as weddings and restaurants.
