COVID-19 restrictions can’t be eased until nation is vaccinated: Dr Faisal
The Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Health Dr Faisal Sultan said on Saturday that the restrictions of COVID-19 will not be eased until the whole population of the country gets vaccinated.
The SAPM in a video message said that coronavirus restrictions will be eased once citizens start getting themselves inoculated.
Dr Faisal Sultan said that the country is reporting a decline in Covid-19 cases and the coronavirus positivity ratio has dropped to the lowest at 4 percent.
“The coronavirus positivity rate has dropped considerably because of the effective government measures in tackling the deadly third wave of coronavirus,” he added.
Faisal Sultan further said that the Covid-19 situation in Sindh is still critical as the positivity ratio stands at 7 percent in the province.
Moreover, the SAPM also urged people not to pay heed to rumours about the efficacy and side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine being administered in the country.
