Earlier on December 2, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) had urged provinces to speed up the vaccination process amid a rising trend of Omicron variant, a new heavily mutated Covid-19 strain.
The forum had discussed the epidemic curve chart data, national vaccine strategy and disease prevalence across the country. The NCOC was briefed about COVID positivity ratio, disease prevalence, number of deaths and new admissions.
The forum had discussed in detail the city-wise Covid-19 vaccination process and agreed upon taking strict measures regarding obligatory vaccination regime.
