So far 26 people have died in Pakistan from this disease, while 52 have been cured. Another 12 different hospitals are admitted in critical condition. Authorities in Pakistan are moving to prevent the disease by appealing to people to stay indoors and go out only in cases of emergencies, but the appeal had little impact on the general public and people appeared to roam in many cities , While security officials tried to convince them to return to their places.
Authorities in Pakistan are busy arranging more space for patients. Although Pakistan has always been celebrating India as its enemy, but after developing the idea in India, it only does its care. Let us know that the Government of India has canceled all the passenger trains by locking down itself a few days ago, the fleet of these trains is being used to treat corona infected patients. Many such trains have been converted into patients’ isolation wards and ICUs. Now looking after India, Pakistan has also started converting business class and air condition sleeper coaches to its patients according to the treatment of similar patients. Pakistan Railways has offered 30 coaches, which are being converted into isolation wards.
At the same time, the Supreme Court of Pakistan has also asked to release dozens of under trial prisoners. The court said that there is a risk of the corona virus spreading in crowded jails. Please tell that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that he cannot do lockdown because by doing so will create hunger situation in the country, the country’s economy is not such that steps like lockdown can be taken. Imran was also criticized for saying this. Since then, train services in Pakistan have also been postponed indefinitely.
