ISLAMABAD: Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar has expressed satisfaction that better compliance of Standards Operating Procedures (SOPs) by the people has helped check the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

Briefing media persons at National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) in Islamabad on Friday, he pointed out that the number of Corona patients in hospitals today are less than those which were in the midst of June. Similarly, there is reduction in the number of deaths as well as the patients on ventilators and oxygen.

The Minister stressed that the situation could further improve if the people continue to follow the precautionary measures. He appreciated the efforts put in by the administration and provincial governments to ensure compliance of the SOPs.

Asad Umar said Karachi is the area where improvement is yet to be seen. He said they are engaged with the provincial authorities to improve the situation there as well.
