COVID19 Emergency Response - Situation Report 6- 07 May 2020

Lock-down measures are likely to continue until 16 May, although the government is looking to ease restrictions gradually. Nearly 1,000 ready made garments factories resumed on a small scale as of 26 April, and mosques reopened 7 May. The government declared that shops and markets will be reopened before Eid-ul-Fitr (23 May) so that trading can continue during the month of Ramadan. With the number confirmed COVID-19 cases increasing daily, there are concerns that this may increase community transmission.
