Keeping in view the mushrooming of coronavirus cases across the country, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) on Sunday has completely banned indoor and outdoor wedding functions from April 5 onwards.
A meeting of the NCOC was held on Sunday morning, chaired by Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar. The chief ministers of the other four provinces attended the meeting virtually.
The government is also considering putting more restrictions on inter-provincial traveling. “Various options for reduction of inter-provincial transport were considered,” a statement issued in this regard read.

Fifty-seven more people died from the virus while 4,767 more contracted the disease on Saturday, according to figures obtained from NCOC.
