ISLAMABAD — Pakistani authorities have imposed mini-lockdown in 4,136 residential areas across the country by sealing off hot spots in a bid to contain rising fatalities and infections from coronavirus.

Monday’s announcement by the military-backed National Command and Operations Center comes amid a steady increase in infections.

The imposition of mini-lockdown and sealing off hotspots started Saturday when Pakistan banned indoor weddings but allowed outdoor gatherings if guests adhere to social distancing rules.

On Monday, Pakistan reported 1,650 new cases and nine deaths from the coronavirus in the past 24 hours. It has registered 344,839 cases and 6,977 deaths since February.
