Last month, the operation of eight trains running between Lahore and Karachi was suspended due to a shortage of passengers amid coronavirus.

In March, the Pakistan Railways had imposed restrictions on train bookings, following the directives of the National Command Operation Centre’s (NCOC) to stem the spread of the coronavirus throughout the country.

The railways had taken the decision following a surge in the country’s coronavirus cases, a notification said.

The Pakistan Railways had directed all divisional superintendents to ensure train bookings do not exceed 70% of the capacity, implement coronavirus SOPs, and not let any passengers onboard without a mask.
