Pakistan will Not Follow Western Countries to Combat Coronavirus Crisis: Umar

KARACHI – Pakistani Minister of Planning, Asad Umar, said that Pakistan would not pursue Western countries to fight the pandemic coronavirus.
He added that the Pakistani government has developed its own plan for handling the crisis.
Addressing the parliament on steps to deal with the health crisis, he said the country is blessed with the best doctors and specialists and the government is receiving input on the matter from them.
He maintained that the testing capacity of the country had improved and that 13,000 tests had been carried out in the last 24 hours. He informed the members of parliament that there are 70 testing laboratories across the country to conduct corona tests.
Asad Umar noted that coronavirus is an infectious disease, and that it will continue to spread. In no way can the lockout prove helpful in erasing the virus, he said.
“If a lockout could have stopped the outbreak, at least one nation would have proven it,” he commented.
He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan knew the country’s shutdown would have negative economic impacts and would affect the poor parts.
“The same will soon be realized in other countries,” he said.
