Social activist Shaniera Akram has expressed disappointment on how the public in Pakistan has stopped adhering to social distancing since the lockdown was lifted on Monday.  "Seeing footage of traffic blocked roads, congested streets and market places and hundreds of people without even a mask on. This country makes me want to cry," she tweeted.

Her followers expressed similar sentiments on the matter.

"Its Pakistan where people are not much aware of the seriousness of this virus, countries likes US and some other developed countries where the have mostly educated people, you will see people doing the same . No one takes it seriously anymore which is sad," one user said.

Actor Ushna Shah also urged people to still maintain maximum social distancing in their capacity. "Yeah we are open now (collective sigh of relief) but can we still please exercise some social distancing, Chipkian mat (don't stick). Lockdown end. Stay safe!"she said.
