PM arrives in DG Khan to review coronavirus situation

Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Dera Ghazi Khan Wednesday to review the arrangements made to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

During his short visit, the prime minister will attend a briefing which will cover issues relating to the quarantine facilities established in the district.

Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has already reached Dera Ghazi Khan to evaluate the situation.

Earlier on Wednesday, a video started circulating on social media, showing the deplorable conditions at the facility where the people were supposed to be quarantined. Instead, the clip revealed how they were thrown into a prison-like premise lacking even basic hygiene facilities.

It triggered a strong reaction on social media, as people criticised the PTI-led federal and provincial governments for their inadequate response to the situation.
