In 1947 Clement Atlee announced that India would be divided into two separate states, India and Pakistan, a decision which would result in the displacement of millions. On August 14, Pakistan became independent and Muhammad Ali Jinnah was sworn in as the country’s first Governor General.   Prayers for the country 14th of August is of immense importance to every Pakistani, therefore it is celebrated with the same traditional passion. People begin their day with prayers in the mosque for the development and prosperity of the country. Alongside Muslims, all minorities celebrate Independence Day with equal zeal and passion.    Cathedral Church Lahore is one such place for Pakistani Christians where children from the Sunday Choir sing songs and perform tableaus in the church, while special prayers are offered for the national security of Pakistan. Kashmiris are also specially remembered in everyone’s prayers during this day. The people of Kashmir are the one awaiting independence for last 75 years under United Nations plebiscite pledge. Nationwide fervour Akin to the past, the Pakistani flag has been hoisted on the roofs of different public buildings across the country. Many buildings have also been decorated with colorful lights.

Apart from these, a traditional flag-lowering ceremony takes place at Lahore's Wagah border, but visitors will not be allowed due to pandemic tough restrictions.   In Pakistan’s largest and coastal city Karachi, Independence Day celebrations have been organized by governmental and non-governmental organizations, schools, colleges, and the private sector. On the morning of August 14, the main ceremony will be held at the mausoleum of the Founder of Pakistan, Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.    Parks and public places will remain open but the government has urged people to observe the SOPs for their own and others’ safety.

  • 5 Key Daily Quarantine Rules for individuals to practice in daily lives (April 13, 2020)
    We would like to inform the 5 rules to keep during ‘Daily Quarantine’ in continuing daily activities to a certain extent while preventing infection and spread of the virus.  5 Key Daily Quarantine Rules (Rule 1) Rest at home for 3-4 days if any symptoms detected. Reason: COVID-19 is easily spread even during the early stage with mild symptoms. You can reduce the possibility of COVID-19 spreading just by reducing contact with others. 1. If you have respiratory symptoms, stay home and rest for 3~4 days.  Respiratory symptoms: Fever, cough, phlegm, sore muscle pain, stuffy nose, etc. 2. If you detect any symptoms, refrain from meeting others, keep your mask on at home if you live with other people. (Refrain contact with elderly and underlying patients such as talking and eating together) 3. Return to your daily routine if the symptoms disappear after resting. If a fever over 38℃ lasts or symptoms get worse during the rest, call (☎1399, ☎ Area code+120) or contact the medical center. 4. Put on mask during essential outings such as visiting doctors, pharmacy, or grocery shopping, etc. 5. Companies, business owners, etc. should cooperate so that the employees with symptoms do not go to work, and allow them to return home and rest. (Rule 2) Keep enough space between people at intervals of double arms  Reason: COVID-19 is mainly spread through droplets of saliva. Keeping more than 2 meters space between people can reduce the possibility of exposure to saliva when talking, coughing or sneezing, which leads to reducing the risk of infection. 1. Do not go to enclosed or crowded places as much as possible. 2. Keep approximately 2 meters away (at least 1 meter) from others in daily lives. 3. Place seats so that people can keep enough distance from others. 4. When many people need to gather, provide enough space so that people can keep 2 meters distance between others or adjust the time. 5. Do not shake hands or hug. (Rule 3) Wash hands thoroughly & cover your cough with your sleeve Reason: Prevents viruses from entering our body through our contaminated hands and droplets of saliva from spreading by following the cough etiquette. 1. Wash hands in running water and soap for more than 30 seconds or hand sanitizer before and after meals, after using the toilet, returning to home from outside, blowing nose, coughing or sneezing. 2. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth before washing your hands. 3.

If you have respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, phlegm, muscle pain, stuffy nose, etc. or feel unwell, put on mask for others. (Rule 4) Ventilate two times or more a day and disinfect regularly.  Reason: Reducing the concentration of virus-containing saliva droplets that may be in the air by ventilation and disinfecting areas that may have droplets of saliva can reduce infection of COVID-19 through hands. 1. Keep the windows open if natural ventilation is possible. If this is not possible due to PM 2.5 or other reasons, ventilate at least two times a day for more than 15 minutes each time. - Open both doors and windows at the same time during ventilation. 2.

When disinfecting, follow the instructions (usage, directions, etc.) from the manufacture of the supplies.- Disinfection supplies: Disinfecting wipes, alcohol (ethanol 70%), sodium hypochlorite (household Clorox, etc.) (Rule 5) Keep Distance, Stay Together  Reason: COVID-19 can be overcome with everyone’s cooperation and effort. We need to create a society that cares, comforts and works together. 1. Keep in touch with our nearest and dearest even though you do not meet them in person. 2. Think of sharing and solidarity for the community. Oppose to discrimination and stigma towards COVID-19 patients, quarantined persons, and etc. 3.
