Authorities, including Prime Minister Imran Khan, have said the rise in cases has been lower smokingusacigarettes.com]Online Cigarettes Store USA[/url] than projected estimates. Faced with the prospect of the lockdown causing economic collapse, they allowed retail markets to reopen last week in a phased lifting of a countrywide lockdown.
Doctors have criticised the reopening, expressing concern that the virus could quickly spread and overwhelm the health system.
"It will definitely lead to an increase in the number of cases, the number of critical cases," the secretary smokingusacigarettes.com]Newport Pleasure[/url] of Pakistan's Young Doctors' Association, Salman Kazmi, told Reuters this month. "We are concerned about pressure that will come on the hospitals."
Re-opened markets were immediately packed with customers last week, with little sign of social distancing or face masks.
The court said that as long as markets were open, there was no justification to shut shopping malls. It found no "justifiable rational or reasonable" basis for businesses to be ordered to shut over the weekend.
