Dr Zafar thanks Mahira for joining virus fight

Dr Zafar Mirza, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health, has thanked actress Mahira Khan for playing her part in the national fight against coronavirus.

“Thank you @TheMahiraKhan for your contribution to Pakistan’s fight against #coronavirus,” he tweeted on Saturday. In her public service video message, retweeted by Dr Zafar, Mahira said:

“We don’t have to fear coronavirus; we have to fight it by being a bit smart and careful.”

“Together we can defeat it and live a vibrant life – by washing our hands regularly and thoroughly with soap and by using hand sentizers; by covering our mouth and nose while sneezing and coughing; and by consulting a doctor in case of emergence of any symptoms (of coronavirus).

“[Remember, that] as much as 98% of coronavirus patients recover (from illness).

“So, we don’t have to fear coronavirus; we have to fight it.”
