Sindh Information Minister Syed Nasir Hussain Shah has denied all rumours of a lockdown that have been circulating on social media.
According to a press release issued by CM House, Shah said: "Neither is there a situation for a lockdown nor is there anything to worry about.
"All government steps are precautionary."
He said some "elements" on social media were asking people to gather ration which he said were "unnecessary".
Shah added that Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has asked the chief secretary to write a letter to the FIA to register cyber crime cases against those who are spreading rumours.
"The people should be confident that their government has the ability to solve all problems," he said.
