However, just like a few other countries, Pakistan also decided to ease lockdown after at least fifty days. The provincial government permitted the opening of small shops till 5:00 PM, while shopping malls were still instructed to keep their doors closed. These small markets witnessed buyers packed like sardines, rubbishing all SOPs set by the government and World Health Organisation (WHO). The roads were overcrowded by vehicles even after 5:00 PM due to the traffic.
Activist Shaniera Akram took to Twitter to express concern about the aforementioned situation. She wrote, “Seeing footage of traffic blocked roads, congested streets and market places and hundreds of people without even a mask on. This country makes me want to cry.”
