The Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government on Wednesday notified the return of lockdown in the region from next week, closing schools, wedding halls and beauty parlours etc while the Punjab government extended smart lockdown in several more localities in the provincial capital.

The measures came as Pakistan’s single-day tally of new coronavirus cases continued to rise by more than 2,000 this week, which the health officials described as the second wave of the deadly contagion.

The AJK government on Wednesday issued a notification regarding the lockdown, which will run from November 22 to December 6. During the two weeks of the lockdown, the government placed a blanket ban on public gatherings.
