Faisalabad shops still operating with their shutters down

Shops in Faisalabad are still operating with their shutters down for the police but open for people.  A lockdown has been imposed in the city to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus across the country. Section 144 has been imposed in Faisalabad, which means that there is a restriction on gatherings of more than five people and movement has been restricted too.

Some people, however, seem to be oblivious to the ban as they were spotted on different roads and in markets on the 21st day of lockdown. A shopkeeper said that it is becoming very difficult for them as they need money now to buy essential food items.
