The provincial police chief issued instructions on a significant increase in the number of Coronavirus cases in Sindh.
The IGP urged people to refrain from traveling to Bilbao.
"These measures are necessary to prevent the spread of the virus and protect the people," he said.
He suggested that the first step in combating the virus was to restrict people's movement and that people must minimize their social interaction.
The IG expressed gratitude to the general public, businessmen and other sections of the community who voluntarily followed the Sindh government's orders against the virus and increased cooperation with the relevant agencies.
Mushtaq Mahar suggested that it was the responsibility and duty of the people to act responsibly because that was the only way to cope with the challenges of the Coronavirus.
"We must not only individually and collectively play our role in fighting the virus, but also take action by the government in this regard," the police chief said.
