“At a time when the world faces a pandemic in the name of novel coronavirus – infecting and causing deaths around the globe – a virus that does not have vaccine or treatment yet, Sindh government has taken tough decisions to protect you against the virus and prevent its spread.”
“We appeal for the citizens to cooperate with the authorities. If you feel the symptoms, contact the government so we can get you tested.”“I know a lot of people are worried about sustenance during the lockdown,” he continued. “If you are in need of rations, contact the government so we can provide you with essentials.”
He also appealed to those who can afford to donate as well and collectively help the poor.“I know people are worried about their jobs during the crisis,” said Bilawal. “In this regard, the Sindh government has issued a notification barring employer to terminate employees and instructing them to ensure salaries are paid. If your employer is not adhering to the directive, contact the government so we can take action.”
“To the employers, I appeal to you to cooperate. Once we are out of this crisis situation, the provincial government will compensate you,”
“The Sindh government is taking tough decisions. We also demand the federal government help us fight the pandemic,” said Bilawal. “We can fight this virus by uniting as a nation. If you don’t’ cooperate with us by staying at home for the next 14 days, our efforts will be in vain. Pakistan will see more infections and may be even more deaths. We will not be able to endure it.”
