In order to encourage people to get themselves vaccinated, the NCOC has announced new restrictions on unvaccinated individuals. NCOC head Asad Umar has warned that the government will not impose any restrictions on businesses.

However, the minister said that restrictions will be imposed on those citizens who have not completely vaccinated themselves against the novel virus by September 30.

Air travel will not be allowed for unvaccinated citizens, while people working and visiting malls and restaurants will also not be allowed to enter after September 30, Umar added.
