The deputy commissioner of Karachi’s District Central, Dr Raja Dharejo, has extended the smart lockdown in the area till December 16 due to rising coronavirus cases.

On November 21, Gulberg, North Nazimabad, Nazimabad, Liaquatabad and New Karachi were among other areas put under a lockdown.

Eighty-two houses in the district are under the police’s supervision. No one from these homes can step outside.

Only pharmacies and shops selling food items are allowed to be open.
