Indoor and outdoor weddings banned across country due to the rising coronavirus cases

The National Command and Operation Centre has banned both indoor and outdoor weddings due to the alarming rise in coronavirus cases across the country. The new restrictions will be imposed from April 5 and last throughout Ramazan, Federal Planning Minister Asad Umar said on Sunday. However, provinces will be free to implement restrictions early in time as per the situation on the ground.

The decision to tighten restrictions has been taken because of the rising number of critical coronavirus patients at hospitals in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Islamabad.

In the last 24 hours, Pakistan reported 4,767 coronavirus cases and 57 deaths.  The positivity has been consistently higher than five percent since March 10.
