Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said the government expects coronavirus cases in the country to peak by end of July or early August. The government had earlier said they expect Pakistan’s coronavirus peak by end of May or early June.
“Please wear masks, this is important. The world has realised that masks can prevent the spread of coronavirus by up to 50 per cent. Secondly, when you go to public spaces, follow the guidelines that have been issued by the government.”
“By not adhering to SOPs we are threatening the lives of our elderly,” he said adding that the immunocompromised were also at risk. He warned that Pakistan might also have to face the kind of Covid-19 conditions prevailing in the US, in Brazil and in Europe if citizens are not careful. The prime minister also said that a lockdown is not the solution to the Covid-19 pandemic.
