Covid: Third wave hits Pakistan, celebrities urge caution

The legendary cricketer said in a video message shared on his Instagram account that the country’s Punjab province is experiencing the worst wave of Covid-19.

It is imperative that residents follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) related to Covid-19, he said.

“I am talking to you people after a long time. I hope you all will be good, not just in Pakistan but across the globe. I read that in Punjab, especially Lahore, Islamabad and Rawalpindi, Covid-19 is spreading fast. I request you all to follow Covid SOPs. Why are you so stubborn? There is a Plan B: Give two slaps to those who don’t follow SOPs."

Pakistan is in the grip of a third wave of Covid-19 and reported 4,468 cases on Saturday.
