Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government ends two-day lockdown policy

Giving a major relief to businesses, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government announced Monday that it would end the two-day lockdown policy in the province.

Therefore, businesses will now be allowed to be open six days a week.

Earlier, businesses were closed for two days a week, as the government hopes to stem the tide of the corona virus by discouraging people from entering markets and bazaars.

As the number of corona viruses continues to decline, the KP government has issued a notification stating that the district administration will determine the day when businesses in the districts will remain closed.

The notification directed the district administration to hold meetings with businesses in this regard. It has also been said that businesses will be allowed to operate in the province till 8 pm.

The orders from provincial governments came as the latest 1,019 cases and 43 new deaths due to the corona virus have been reported in the country in the past 24 hours.
