In order to curb the rising number of coronavirus infections, Islamabad authorities have announced a full lockdown on May 7 from 6 pm onwards.

The City's Deputy Commissioner on Thursday said that public transport will be suspended after 6 pm on May 7 and all parks, recreational places, and commercial areas will also be closed after 6 pm, reported The News International.

The authorities will ensure that people follow the government's mandated "Stay Home, Stay Safe" policy, the Deputy Commissioner added.

This comes as at least 108 more succumbed to the coronavirus during the past 24 hours in Pakistan, taking the cumulative toll to 18,537.

According to the official data provided by National Command Operation Centre (NCOC) on Thursday, 4,198 new cases were reported when 46,467 tests were conducted across the country in the past 24 hours.
