Border officials say the Pak-Iran border has been partially restored.

According to details, the arrival of pilgrims, traders, and common Pakistanis from Iran has been started. Border officials have said that 317 pilgrims, 61 traders and ordinary people entered Pakistan on the last day.

According to credible news sources, the total number of Pakistanis coming from Iran has increased to 4650. 12 Iranian containers coming from Iran were sprayed and sterilized, and the drivers were also screened before entering Pakistan.

It is to be noted that only Pakistanis are allowed to come from Iran through the Pak-Iran Taftan border, and all persons are being kept in Quarantine. Further journey is allowed after clearance. A tent settlement has also been set up in Taftan.

Emergency was imposed in Gawadar, Mashkel, Mand, and Panjgur districts due to coronavirus outbreak. Educational institutions across the province, including Quetta, are also closed until March 15.

It should be remembered that on February 24, Pakistan was informed about the spread of the coronavirus in Iran and the Taftan border was closed, as well as the transit gate.
