Pakistan marked the first day of Ramadan today, with people rushing to purchase groceries and other items required for the preparation of the traditional iftar dishes.
With the looming threat of coronavirus, however, the government has been repeatedly appealing to the masses to follow safety measures in a bid to lessen the spread of the virus.
Today, people flocked to the markets, while several others — following the years-long tradition — were seen busy arranging iftar for the masses.
Take a look at how Pakistan marked the first day of Ramadan:
