Social distancing is of crucial importance to prevent the coronavirus spread while going out for necessary chores.
The Karachi commissioner has issued an advisory in this
regard. It is particularly meant for the ones going out for groceries and
unavoidable banking transactions.
Deputy commissioners of all six Karachi districts have been
asked to ensure that visitors outside markets, grocery shops and banks form
queues and keep themselves at a safe distance.
“People going to purchase necessary items should keep a
distance of at least three to four feet,” Commissioner Iftikhar Shallwani
said. This distance should be maintained while standing in queues outside banks,
Commissioner Shallwani directed deputy commissioners ensure
effective implementation in this regard.
Acting upon the directives, deputy commissioners have had
circles marked at a particular distance outside banks, grocery shops and
supermarkets in their respective areas.
Their staff has been deployed at these places along with
Rangers and police personnel to ensure that the visitors maintain a safe
distance from each other.
