Sindh government will continue with the restrictions announced Monday. It will not adopt SOPs announced by the National Control Operation Centre yesterday, which allowed outdoor dining and opening of tourist spots, among others.

Sindh government’s taskforce decided in a meeting Thursday that any further decision will be held after evaluating rise in cases. It will meet on Saturday to discuss the developments again. WHO representatives will also submit their suggestions in the meeting.

Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said in the meeting that 2,000 cases were recorded on May 19, which indicates that cases have been rising after Eid. “We think it is difficult to relax the SOPs just yet,” he said. The taskforce might have to introduce stricter measures, it told Shah.

The government has allowed markets and bazaars across Sindh to stay open from 6am to 8pm, it announced Monday.
