Technology giant Google, in a report entitled Covid-19 Community Mobility Report, analyzed movement trends during the block by using location data from smartphone users who chose to share the location history through their Google accounts.
According to the report, mobility in Pakistan in retail and recreation areas decreased by 65 percent as the closure forced all shopping centers, restaurants and cafes to close.
The report found that visitors visited less important stores such as grocery stores and pharmacies, with the mobility trend declining by 47 percentage points.
However, residential mobility increased by 19 percent as people stayed at home during the government-enforced closure.
