ISLAMABAD:

Pakistan's nerve centre monitoring coronavirus situation has launched a helpline for citizens to report any violation of standard operating procedures (SOPs) against Covid-19 from anywhere in the country.

"In case you come across any violation of Covid SOPs, please text at Whatsaap number 0335-3336262," the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) said on Twitter on Tuesday.

Violations of the coronavirus-related SOPs include non-wearing of mask, non-adherence to social distancing, over-crowding at public places and others, it added.

"Please take a picture and brief account of violation and send it to 03353336262 (0335333NCOC) along with following details," the NCOC added.

Pakistan's coronavirus situation has worsened worryingly over the past month, with the Covid-19 positivity rate shooting past 11 per cent as the third wave showed no signs of abating.

More than 4,500 of the 40,369 coronavirus tests conducted over the past 24 hours came out positive, the NCOC data showed, taking the national positivity to 11.21 per cent.
