Additionally, Rs600 million will also be paid to 100 families who have been registered with the local zakat councils, Adviser to Sindh CM Murtaza Wahab said.

The decision was taken for daily wagers and lower-income groups who have been suffering because of the lockdown in the province.

The province has been closed down, excluding shops of essential food items and services, as a precautionary measure to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus. Sindh has reported the highest number of cases in the country so far.
