The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has reimposed a complete lockdown in the province from Friday till Sunday and ordered the suspension of business on the weekend but shopkeepers are having none of it. They are protesting against the decision.

Traders say the decision will only result in markets being full of customers, which increases the risk of the coronavirus spreading.

If the government had opened shops round the clock, big crowds wouldn’t turn up for shopping, a shopkeeper told SAMAA TV on Sunday.

As of Monday, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has reported nearly 10,000 coronavirus cases. The province is one of the worst affected in Pakistan with 424 deaths.
