LAHORE: The district administration of Lahore on Wednesday imposed a smart lockdown in the provincial capital’s Model Town amid a surge in Covid-19 cases stemming from the highly contagious Delta variant.
The PML-N secretariat which is located in Model Town’s Block H has been sealed to ensure no political activities take place as long as the area remains under the lockdown to curb the spread of the virus.
There are a total of 40 houses in the Block H, including three residences of the Sharif family and the secretariat. Though a notification regarding the smart lockdown was issued on July 31, it was implemented today.
Movement of the people residing in the area will be strictly restricted for one month, the district administration said.
The police personnel have been deployed in the area in light of possible political reaction to the move.
