Major Cities of Pakistan Undergo COVID-19 ‘Smart Lockdown’

ISLAMABAD – Areas in Pakistan’s major cities underwent a “smart shutdown” on Tuesday after the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) released a list of 20 cities identified as coronavirus hot spots across the country, Pakistani media reported Tuesday.
Parts of Islamabad and Peshawar have been sealed, and significant areas of Lahore will be blocked from midnight tonight.
In Peshawar, the four areas that have been identified as coronavirus hot spots were sealed with the exit and entry routes sealed.
Police have been deployed in market areas, except in supermarkets and medical stores.
Similarly, in Ghotki of Sindh, four areas were sealed, and section 188 was imposed after it was identified as one of the regions.
“A total of 20 cities across Pakistan have been identified as likely to have an increase in infection rate that needs restrictive measures for containment,” an NCOC statement said Monday.
Pakistan has reported more than 148,000 cases and more than 2,800 deaths so far from the new coronavirus.
The other cities identified by the NCOC are Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Faisalabad, Multan, Gujranwala, Swat, Hyderabad, Sukkar, Sialkot, Gujarat, Ghotki, Larkana, Khairpur, DG Khan, Malakand, and Mardan.
The NCOC shared that the TTQ strategy aims to identify disease spread, target groups/hotspots to allow for specific blocks, and resource optimization based on needs at all levels.
Punjab government imposes a total blockade in some areas of Lahore.
At a press conference on Monday, Provincial Health Minister Yasmin Rashid announced that a complete blockade would be imposed in some areas of Lahore due to the increase in coronavirus cases in the provincial capital.
“Many areas of Lahore will close at 12 am onwards (Tuesday),” said the minister.
Meanwhile, some areas in Gulberg would also be closed entirely and some companies in the Iqbal city of Lahore as well.
“Food stores and pharmacies will remain open in these areas,” the minister clarified, adding that the areas will undergo a total closure for at least two weeks. She said that these areas would be reopened after evaluating the situation.
In Punjab, Lahore is the most affected city and has reported over 27,000 cases.
Five villages identified in Karachi as “hot spots.”
Separately, in a letter to Deputy Commissioner Karachi West, District Health Officer (DHO) Dr Shafique Ahmad identified 16 union councils in western Karachi where a smart blockade should be imposed.
