Learn to live with virus, premier to public
Prime Minister Imran Khan has warning that the coronavirus crisis will be deepened and the people should learn to live with the virus.
Imran dubbed relaxation in lockdown a compulsion to get economic wheel run, saying: “A total of 150 million people have been facing deep economic crisis because of the lockdown.
“How the country could afford to enforce the lockdown. We can contain the virus by imposing lockdown but can’t stop it. The country can’t afford an indefinite lockdown.”
He said cash handouts to jobless people will begin from Monday.
About health issues, the PM said: “Although Pakistan's cases were much less than the projection, the tally would continue to increase. It is estimated that four in hundred people infected by the virus will need to go to hospital. This would increase pressure on hospitals and thus, the government was taking steps to increase the country's healthcare capacity.”
