(Karachi) Balochistan Government Spokesperson Liaquat Shahwani has said that the coronavirus situation in the province has improved as the percentage of positive cases in the first week of June declined to 16 percent from 32 percent.

Addressing a media briefing on Monday, he said, "The people followed standard operating procedures for curbing the spread of the virus that caused a drop in the number of cases."

"There has been an almost 50 percent reduction in hospitalisations and the number of critical patients has also reduced."

Shahwani mentioned that the provincial government is preparing SOPs for reopening educational institutions. "We are looking at whether we can open them in phases. We are trying to disinfect all educational buildings before Eidul Azha."

"If cases don't increase from now till Eid, then the government will not face any difficulty in opening educational institutes," he stated.
