All Pakistani provinces have placed a lockdown to combat the spread of new coronavirus. The Sindh authorities-most hit by the spread of the disease-have rigorously imposed the shutdown by taking action against those spotted loitering in the cities.
The Footage went viral on social media showing a police force in Karachi, Sindh’s capital, rounding up and lining the street loiters outside a police station.
Cops then ordered them to do sit-. The officials have even allowed media workers to document the penalty. The video would hopefully serve as a warning for anyone who still does not stick to the lockdown order.
On Monday, the number of cases with coronavirus rose to 803 in Pakistan. Compared with the previous day, the numbers increased by 150. The numbers rose to 352 in southern Sindh province, followed by 225 in Punjab province, 31 in northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 108 in west Balochistan and 71 in northern Gilgit-Baltistan. The death count sprung to six when a doctor in Gilgit succumbed to death.
