Prime Minister allows construction sector to commence operations from today

April 14, 2020: Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced to open the construction industry in cities from today as this has the lowest risk factor in terms of Coronavirus spread.

Talking to media after meeting of National Coordination Committee in Islamabad on Tuesday, he said there is consensus between center and the provinces regarding opening the construction sector for providing employment to people.

He said an ordinance will be laid out soon to provide big incentives to the construction sector to generate job opportunities.

Imran Khan announced to extend the sustained lockdown across the country for the next two weeks.

He said the hard decision of imposing lockdown in the country was very well implemented due to cooperation of people.

Consequently, encouraging results are being received with spread of Coronavirus slowing down to 30% of the projected target.

He said the government took a number of steps to stop the spread coronavirus in the country, including closure of schools and educational institutions, cancelling 23rd March Parade and PSL and all other official and private functions where people could congregate.

Imran Khan said if these steps had not been taken, 190 people would have died by now. He said the mortality rate is quite high in advanced countries including the US, Spain, Italy and others.
