Government seals major restaurants in Karachi


The Sindh government has begun to seal major restaurants in Karachi to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Karachi police is taking action against the hotels and restaurants violating the government’s orders of limiting large gatherings.

So far, the police have raided Rashid Minhas Road, Gulistan-e-Jauhar and Keamari, sealing all the restaurants violating the orders. Sindh had issued an advisory on Sunday urging people to avoid crowded places and attending large gatherings amid fears of the contagious disease. The order addresses explicitly those over 40 or immuno-compromised. However, the police haven’t cracked down on smaller tea shops, asking them to close down by 11 pm. The ramped-up safety measures come after the coronavirus infections in Sindh jumped to 76, with 50 more patients reported within the last 24 hours. The situation has pushed the panic button in the province, especially in Karachi, where 25 cases were reported.
