Pakistan Railways to restore all trains from August 9

The Pakistan Railways has announced that it’ll be restoring all train services from Sunday.

All trains are going to be “booked at 100% capacity” from August 9, it said during a notification issued Saturday.

Pakistan had suspended passenger trains across the country within the end of March. The move was aimed toward stemming the spread of coronavirus.

However, 15 trains were partially restored in May with only 60% bookings online.

The decision to run all trains with full occupancy coincides with a big drop by the amount of coronavirus cases in Pakistan.

The country earlier in the week allowed restaurants, cinemas, theatres and parks to reopen from August 10.
