He also mentioned that I am afraid from the most problematic months (End of December and January) because there will be the highest number of cases in these months and there is a warning of infection to a large number of people in this time period.
According to Geo News, Sindh and Punjab recorded 41 new deaths while six people died due to coronavirus in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. To decrease coronavirus death rate and infection in country government also imposed lockdowns in different virus-affected zones along with a general ban on public meetings, gathering etc. As we know there are many factors that can transfer coronavirus from one person to another person. One of the main issues now a days is if two persons are interacting with each other, one or both persons are wearing mask but one of the person is coughing or showing symptoms of coronavirus, that encounter may occur outdoor or indoors, so avoiding this situation we can follow “15 minutes within six feet rule” is a helpful guideline. It is the best way to minimize close interactions with people who are not member of your family. By following this simple rule, we can save many lives as well as our family.
