KARACHI: National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has announced to lift lockdown imposed in the Sindh province from August 09 while continuing with other restrictions on movement.

According to the NCOC, Karachi and Hyderabad will face new restrictions on movement from August 09.

It is pertinent to mention here that the Sindh province announced to impose lockdown in the province from July 31 until August 08 citing a spike in COVID-19 cases.

Earlier in the day, a session of the NCOC was briefed that the fourth wave of Covid-19 has entered its sixth week in the country and losing some of its steam.
