ISLAMABAD:

The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) announced on Tuesday easing additional Covid restrictions imposed in six districts, contributing most to the daily caseload, after September 22.

The notification came following a meeting of the country's Covid nerve centre, chaired by Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar.

In view of the gradual decline in the disease, the forum decided to remove restrictions from the districts of Lahore, Faisalabad, Multan, Sargodha, Gujarat and Bannu.

Additionally, the NCOC also stated that the general non-pharmaceutical interventions for the entire country will remain enforced till September 30, and will be reviewed on September 28.
