KP govt to block SIMs of unvaccinated people in five districts


The provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa announced that it would block the mobile phone SIM cards of people in five districts of Peshawar division which were not vaccinated by the deadline set of 31 August 2021.

Officials justified this decision following the low numbers of people coming to the 800 vaccination centres in the province despite many initiatives led by the district administrations and health department to improve Covid-19 vaccination rates.
