330 shops, plaza sealed in Karachi


SOPs violations
KARACHI: The district administration, along with the army, sealed 330 shops, including a shopping centre, for violating the coronavirus standard operating procedures (SOPs) mandated by the government. The administration of Karachi’s District South sealed the shops in the DHA Phase 2 neighbourhood. They explained that all the shops and the shopping mall were sealed due to the violation of coronavirus SOPs. Apart from the action in the district south, the authorities also sealed 800 shops and a plaza at the MA Jinnah Road. Shops were also sealed in Arambagh, Lyari, and fines were also imposed on the shops. Last month, Prime Minister Imran Khan said he had directed the military — as well as police and Rangers — to help ensure that the SOPs regarding Covid-19 are being strictly implemented and followed.
