The South Asian country is reopening all sectors over a steady drop in coronavirus cases.

Nevertheless, social distancing, mask-wearing, and other virus prevention SOPs are being ignored, increasing concerns that the calm may end soon.

According to the PMA (Pakistan Medical Association), Pakistan is at the risk of facing a fourth wave if the strict implementation of health guidelines is not observed.

It is pertinent to note that new highly contagious virus variants originally reported in the UK, South Africa, Brazil, and India have now reported cases in Pakistan.

The planning minister, who heads the NCOC (National Command & Operation Center) that oversees coronavirus response, remarked that the fourth wave might emerge in the country next month.

“Examined the artificial intelligence-based disease modeling analysis today in the NCOC,” Umar said in a post on Twitter.

“In the absence of strong SOP implementation and sustained strong vaccination program, the fourth wave could arise in Pakistan in July.”
