He expressed concern about the exponential growth of Covid-19 cases in Pir Jo Goth village and urged people to adopt the principle of social isolation to stop the spread of the virus.
“This is a very small village where so many cases have been reported. The virus spread there because a woman went to Hyderabad and then came back”, Murad Ali Shah said “The cases are rising exponentially. We are in the second phase of the lockdown and have to take more precautionary measures.”
