The Punjab government is set to lift the lockdown imposed in light of the smog situation in the province tomorrow (Saturday) after a heavy spell of rain in different areas washed away the impurities present in the air, caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi announced on Friday.

The authorities had imposed a smart lockdown in the city as thick smog had engulfed several districts, deteriorating the air quality to a dangerous level.

However, the downpour washed away the smog, subsequently improving the air quality.

“After assessing improved air quality post recent rainfall, in consultation with experts and [the] Punjab environment department, we’ve decided to lift the lockdown,” Naqvi said on X.
