The Punjab government is mulling imposing coronavirus-like restrictions in Lahore to control the worsening smog situation in the provincial capital, it emerged Tuesday.

According to sources, the authorities are likely to announce a complete shutdown on Wednesdays when all schools, markets, and factories will be closed.

Under the new policy, the government departments will operate with 50% strength on Wednesday, said the sources, adding that it has also been advised to carry out snap-checking on weekends — Saturday and Sunday.

The unusual traffic in the metropolis is the main reason behind smog while emissions from factories only contribute 7% in overall pollution in Lahore.


It has also been suggested, according to sources, to impose heavy fines on factories violating the law and shut them in case of continuous ignorance of the directives.
