Vaccination process will continue during the holy month
The Punjab government has changed the timings of vaccinations centres for Ramazan.
The provincial government has decided that the centres will operate in two shifts during the holy month.
The new timings will be applicable from first of Ramazan.
The district administration and Punjab Health Department have been considering imposing a complete lockdown in Lahore after the coronavirus positivity ratio in the city climbed to 19% on Monday.
Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid has warned that if precautionary measures are not taken, the situation in Lahore will worsen.
There are zero ventilators at the Jinnah Hospital, Services Hospital, Gangaram Hospital, Kot Khawaja Saeed Teaching Hospital and One Gate Hospital, she said.
The OPD section of the Jinnah Hospital has been shut for public.
“Oxygen beds at hospitals across Lahore have reached their 70% capacity,” Rashid said adding that a complete lockdown should therefore be imposed in Lahore.
The final decision regarding this will, however, be taken by the Punjab government.
