PM Imran Khan has once again opposed the complete lockdown, saying that corona cases in Pakistan are less than expected. It is difficult to say how long the epidemic will last.
Prime Minister Imran Khan said that 60,000 people have died in the United States, 20,000 in three other countries. The Iranian government has closed colleges and universities, the rest of the business is open.
Iran thinks that the loss of business closure will be more than coronavirus. I also talked to Egyptian President Al-Sisi. Big business is open in Egypt, including work on construction projects. Our lockdown was more strict than Egypt.
PM Imran Khan said that he could not say how long the epidemic of Corona would last. From the first day, my team realized that the most affected by the lockdown would be the working class. Dr. Saniya Nishtar distributed money under the Ehsas program, never done before.
PM Imran Khan said that we are starting SMS service. Unemployed people can send SMS to us. We will collect information through Tiger Force. We are bringing programs to help small businesses. Overseas Pakistanis want to come back home.
There are Pakistani workers in many countries who want to come back. Overseas Pakistanis are our greatest asset. We have a responsibility to take care of Pakistanis abroad. We have asked all embassies to help Pakistanis abroad.
The Prime Minister said that the National Command and Operations Center is reviewing the situation on a daily basis. The Prime Minister’s Relief Fund is also starting soon. We have also started the production of ventilators at the local level.
He said that they want to make Pakistan a welfare state. The data they are compiling will help the country to become a welfare state. It is easy for countries like the USA to reach out to the unemployed. Pakistan does not have laborers and daily wagers registered.
