As COVID cases surge, NCOC to revisit lifting several coronavirus restrictions

The National Command and Operation Center (NCOC), will meet today, Tuesday, to revisit last month’s decision to lift several coronavirus restrictions as COVID-19 cases have surged. On Monday, the NCOC held a meeting chaired by Federal Minister for Planning Asad Umar and discussed rising positivity rates, corresponding actions, and the national vaccine strategy.

The officials also considered deferring the opening up of cinemas, indoor weddings, and dine-in restaurants, which were expected to reopen from March 15.

The next phase of vaccinations in the country, targeting senior citizens above 60 years would begin from March 10.
