"Masks, avoidance of large crowds and continued vaccination remain crucial tools in this work," Dr Sultan tweeted.

Last month, Minister for Planning Asad Umar had also warned that the fourth wave of the Covid-19 could emerge in Pakistan in July if the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are not followed.

Umar said that the NCOC carried out an “artificial intelligence-based disease modeling analysis”, which suggests that in the absence of "strong SOP enforcement and continued strong vaccination program,” the 4th wave is likely to emerge in Pakistan.
