Therefore, Punjab government will shift them to their homes from quarantine tomorrow.

Then, the government shifted them to provincial government’s quarantine centres.
Aforesaid 640 Zaireen belonging to Sindh had undergone second quarantine at Sukkur.
Despite genuine complaints of lack of essential facilities, they cooperated with the government and stayed at quarantine centre Sukkur.
Finally, their negative Coronavirus test reports came to rescue them.
Officials concerned prepared their list with details and began sending them to their homes.
Zaireen (pilgrims) said they had cooperated with the government with a view to protect 220 million Pakistanis.
They urged all coming from any country to Pakistan to follow the suit.
According to some volunteers, government assured that they would not disturb these pilgrims.
