KARACHI: The Sindh government has taken notice of the violation of standard operating procedures at vegetable markets in the province, stated Sindh Agriculture Minister Ismail Rahoo on Sunday.

"Social distancing should be practiced in all the vegetable markets in Sindh and crowds should be avoided as this could cause the virus to spread," maintained the minister.
