July 31, 2021

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain says the federal government is extending its full support to the provincial governments to contain the fourth wave of COVID-19.

Talking to newsmen in Lahore today (Saturday), he said an irresponsible attitude on the part of Indian government has caused the spread of the Delta-variant of COVID-19.

The Information Minister said the option of imposing a complete lockdown is not allowed to any provincial government.

He said the Sindh government's decision of imposing lockdown in the province is not appropriate as the country's economy is all set for a take-off.

Fawad Chaudhry said complete lockdown will severely affect the working class, particularly the daily wage earners.
