“Lockdown throughout the country is bearing fruit as the number of cases would have been much higher if containment steps were not taken in a timely manner,” he said.

He further added that every province already has its own restrictions in place but based on the National Coordination Committee meeting, all provinces, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit Baltistan (GB) have uniformly decided to implement these measures from this point forward.
