48 hotels sealed in Naran, Kaghan and Shogran after staff tests COVID positive

The Mansehra district administration has sealed all hotels in tourist hotspots Shogran, Naran and Kaghan after several Covid-19 cases were reported among staff working at different hotels. The district health department had reported 47 Covid-19 cases at private hotels located in these spots. 48 hotels, including 22 main businesses and their respective branches, had been sealed at all three tourist spots.

Arrangements have been made for patients to be quarantined at the hotels by the local health department and officials were in the process of tracing and testing those who had come into contact with the patients.

Covid-19 cases in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s tourist spots have seen a marked increase after the government lifted countrywide restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the virus. This has forced local authorities to start large-scale random testing of tourists.
