The Balochistan government, in light of increasing coronavirus cases, will ask the National Command and Operation Centre to extend the reopening of primary schools in the province from September 30 to October 15, 2020.

Balochistan government spokesperson, Liaquat Shahwani, said that the province reported 427 coronavirus infections in the last 10 days, which was “alarming”.

The spokesperson said that committees led by deputy commissioners were formed in all districts to determine the actual situation of the pandemic’s resurgence.

Shahwani said that the province had made wearing masks compulsory, and if a person violates it in schools, they will be slapped with a fine.
