70 security Officials suspended in Balochistan for ‘saying no to vaccination’: No vaccination, no job

All the paramilitary personnel were repeatedly directed to get Covid-19 jabs but many ignored the official requests and reminders.

About 70 security officials belonging to Levies in Duki district of Balochistan have been suspended for refusing vaccination despite repeated reminders. According an official statement issued by Assistant Commissioner Habib Bangalzai, all the paramilitary personnel were directed to get Covid-19 jabs but many turned a blind eye to official requests and reminders. “As a result, they have been suspended and their salaries withheld.

The personnel suspended over apparent reluctance to get the vaccines include two naib tehsildars, three constables, a muharrar, and a wireless operator. The deputy commissioner had earlier asked the levies personnel to ensure their vaccinations to protect themselves from the Covid-19.

The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) had on June 9 made coronavirus vaccines mandatory for all public and private sector employees, directing government employees to be fully vaccinated by June 30.

Pakistan has so far reported 958,408 Covid-19 cases with 22,321 deaths and 904,320 recoveries since the pandemic began last year. According to the data shared by the NCOC on June 30, as many as 23 deaths and 735 more cases were reported from across the country in a single day and the number of active cases had reached 32,153. As of June 29, there were 2,201 patients hospitalised across the country and 253 of them were on ventilators.
