Punjab Health Minister Dr. Yasmin Rashid said on Sunday that Pakistan would not go through the drastic chaos like European countries faced as the government has tackled pandemic wisely.
Talking to a private news channel she stated hopefully that in Punjab numbers of critical corona patients were not higher as the maximum corona patients carried mild symptoms of a novel virus.
Despite the fewer number of critical patients, people must follow the safety measures as 11 people were died due to corona but mostly were more than 55 of age, or already suffering from chronicle diseases.
”We have fully locked down the suspected areas to contain the disease and no movement was allowed in Jehlum and Pindi Gheb,” she said.
Most patients were those who attended large congregations or had traveled history, yet many people received the contagion from the acquaintances who returned from abroad, she mentioned.
Replying to a question she said through locking down the suspected areas the country hopefully would defeat the viral disease.
