Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Dr Zafar Mirza said that no Pakistani will be permitted to travel back from China till they finish their testing period.
While addressing a press conference, Zafar Mirza said, “Through this one measure we have ensured Pakistan remains free from the disease. Because our case definition says that travelling and staying in China is an important factor [behind the spread of the disease],”
“Those declared free of the virus after the period will be issued with a certificate that assures the airport officials that they are free from the disease,” Mirza said.
“Chairman Pemra has reached out to all the TV channels. Through public service messaging, we will brief the public,”
“The government will take good care of the students who have contracted the virus,”
“Till now, seven or eight countries have carried out evictions or requested china for evacuation,”
“We should not forget in Wuhan people from 120 countries are living in the city and 120 countries support that China is correctly handling the measures,”
“Thirty to forty people have planned this. If we implement this plan successfully then we will protect Pakistani people from this disease,” assured Dr Mirza.
“Certainly it is not a gesture of goodwill,” He added.
