Earlier today, Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that we need to realise that the pandemic is a global problem and it has nothing to do with just one province.
While addressing media, Chief Minister Sindh said “We cannot make decisions in isolation, the pandemic is affecting everybody.”
He said “We started working on the issue when the first case was reported.”
“We formed a task force, took help from wherever we could.”
Sindh CM said “I did not have experience in dealing with a pandemic neither did my close aides — so we learned from the world’s experience,”
“We have been blamed for enforcing a lockdown without thinking — that is not true. There is only one way to deal with a pandemic”
Murad Ali Shah said The economy will recover, but human beings cannot come back.
The Federal government created its program, but it does not consider social distance.
We also told the federal government that the lockdown was not 100% effective.
I can assure that all the tests conducted on WHO guidelines.
Moreover CM Sindh said I can assure that 90 percent of the tests conducted free.
