Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that the Coronavirus had not yet reached the highest level expected in Pakistan, probably in late May and early June.
Foreign Minister has said that “We should be prepared that the number of people infected with Coronavirus will increase and the death rate is not out of the question. Today we are facing a situation where We have to stop the spread of this corona epidemic and on the other hand we have to save the poor from starvation. We have to keep a balance in this regard anyway. The coronavirus has not reached the highest level in Pakistan yet Expected at the peak of this virus”.
The Foreign Minister said that Pakistan is a poor country, we cannot lock down permanently, we have to formulate or change the strategy keeping in view all the factors, for the early repatriation of Pakistanis abroad. Joint efforts are being worked out with all relevant agencies, including aviation, at this time thousands of Pakistanis are waiting for their return, we have a full sense of their suffering and it is our responsibility to bring them back home, but we have to take deal with it with our full responsibility and potential too.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that “Earlier we were repatriating 2000 Pakistanis every week but now with the opening of more airports and increasing our testing capacity, we will now be able to repatriate more than 6000 Pakistanis and provide them with testing and quarantine facilities. The situation is unclear at this time because as the rate of corona testing increases, the situation will become clearer, it is also possible that someone is a corona carrier and does not show symptoms and is corona free. However, we also urge people to take precautions to prevent this epidemic We have to give and also make sure that undue fear and panic do not spread”.
