Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan warned on Monday that if the scheduled standard operating procedures (SOP) are ignored during the upcoming Eid al-Adha and the Holy Month of Muharram, it will “overweight” the deadly coronavirus.
Prime Minister Imran issued a warning after warning people not to repeat “their actions on Eid al-Fitr” and to take a particularly cautious approach to Eid al-Fitr, which lasted nearly three weeks. He avoided the recurrence of the coronavirus.
In a televised address to the nation, he said Pakistan’s situation was quite different from China, the US, and other European countries. Due to the ‘smart lockdown’ strategy, “we were able to contain the spread of coronavirus and now the whole world is now recognising its benefits,” he noted.
The Prime Minister said that Pakistan’s strategy for dealing with the virus must be different from the rest of the world, as the vast majority of daily betting in the country is unregistered.
“[At least] 70-80% of labourers in our country are not registered; therefore, our approach had to be different from the European countries.
“We could not take any drastic step like imposing curfew. We were afraid that more people will die from starvation and poverty than coronavius itself.
“India is now suffering the results of their decisions and the people are suffering in the neighborhood,” he said.
The Prime Minister emphasized that the whole world is accepting and accepting that blockade is not the only way to solve the virus situation. He added that Pakistan is also focusing on agriculture because “we don’t want any distortion or interruption in food supply.”
