Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Khawaja Asif criticized the government over failed policies to prevent the spread of the virus.
Speaking in National Assembly (NA), Khawaja Asif said the federal government needs to better focus on saving the lives of people from deadly coronavirus instead of doing politics on this matter.
The PML-N leader said there is a contradiction in the statements of Prime Minister Imran Khan regarding the COVID-19 issue. There is no one who can explain his statements.
“Do not play politics of vote over COVID-19. World Health Organization (WHO) has said that our surveillance is weak, we are not tracking patients correctly — not on an individual or on a government level,” he went on to say.
Khawaja Asif told that Pakistan is among 10 countries with the highest reporting rates and the trajectory is sadly showing that we are going up to number three or four.
Hospitals in the federal capital Islamabad are not admitting patients over the age of 60 because they think saving them is difficult, he said.
Khawaja Asif earlier challenged official statistics of Covid-19 cases in the country. He alleged the government was leading the country into “irreversible disaster through lies, confusion, and blunders”.
