According to the latest reports, the authorities are planning to impose smart lockdown again in different areas after the cases of Covid-19 once again increased.
According to The News, Sindh Health Minister Azra Pechuho said the coronavirus reinfections were being reported at different public and private hospitals in Sindh where people who had earlier tested positive for the coronavirus infection asymptomatically were now experiencing severe infections,
Advising people to strictly take precautionary measures even if they had contracted the disease earlier, the minister said: “Like in the rest of the world, reinfections with the coronavirus are being seen in Sindh too.”
“People direly need to take the precautionary measures as the second attack of the virus caused chronic infection and complications, especially in elderly people,” the provincial minister emphasised.
