The meeting to be held at the Prime Minister’s official residence at 5 pm on Monday will discuss ways out to control the COVID-19 pandemic, which has so far claimed 78 lives.
Today’s meeting is likely to discuss measures to control the pandemic threat, which was on the rise as public were not abiding by the safety measures and protocols decided by the government.
