NCOC acknowledged the supportive role of telecommunication companies, academia, ulema, and other stakeholders who came forward to help save Pakistan from the ravages of COVID when the pandemic had gripped the region at large. Appreciating the implementation of the Obligatory vaccination regime, Chairperson NCOC stressed upon all federating units to avoid complacency as the threat is yet not over.
