ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has been terribly frightened by the Coronavirus epidemic, which is again gaining momentum in many countries of the world. The Imran Khan government wants to vaccinate all the people as soon as possible. A new punishment has also been announced in this episode. That is, those who are not yet serious about getting the vaccine, they will have to face the wrath of the government. The government has said in clear words that from October 1, people without vaccine will not be able to travel by train.
PAK had taken these steps earlier
Even before this, the government has taken many steps to create fear in the hearts of those who do not get the corona vaccine. In which decisions like Flight Ban and Sim Card Ban are included. Pakistan has banned those who do not take a single dose of the vaccine from traveling on domestic flights. At the same time, the government of Sindh province had recently ordered the closure of mobile SIMs of people who did not get the vaccine.
Decision taken in NCOC meeting
The decision to ban train travel was taken in a meeting of the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) set up for the prevention of corona infection in Pakistan. The center has also expressed concern over people’s reluctance towards the vaccine and cases of re-spreading infection. Experts believe that many more tough decisions can be taken in the coming days.
70 lakhs got both the doses
Giving information about the NCOC meeting, an official said that such people will not be allowed to travel by train from October 1, who do not want to get the vaccine. This decision will be strictly implemented. Domestic air travel of those who have not been included in the vaccination has already been banned. Let us tell you that Pakistan started vaccination in February and so far more than 37 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccine. Whereas only 70 lakh people have got both the doses.
