District government Lahore placed banners in petrol stations across the city saying that only fully vaccinated people will be able to get the petrol from September 1. The decision came amid the sharp increase of Covid-19 cases in the country.
“From September 1, only customers with coronavirus vaccine certificates will be able to buy petrol,” a banner placed on a petrol pump read.
Earlier this week, Federal Minister for Planning Asad Umar has said those who have not been fully vaccinated will not be allowed to use public transport from October 15.
As per the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC), Pakistan has recorded 4,016 new cases of coronavirus in the last 24 hours.
