Chief Minister (CM) Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah has announced that educational institutions, wedding halls and parks across Sindh including Karachi will remain completely closed for the next 15 days.
He said that indoor and outdoor dining will also be completely banned in restaurants. The public has to implement SOPs to avoid tough decisions.
Addressing a press conference, Murad Ali Shah said that since Eid-ul-Fitr, the situation of coronavirus in the province including Karachi has become very worrying.
He said that the situation would not have been so bad if the federation had accepted the proposal to close inter-provincial transport.
CM said that steps have been taken as per the recommendations of the Corona Task Force which will be implemented from May 24. Educational institutions will remain closed for the next two weeks, he added.
Murad Ali Shah alleged that the water supply was further reduced when the Sindh government protested against getting less water from its share. The water supply to Sindh has been reduced by 35% to 37% while the supply to Punjab has been improved, said CM.
