Ajmal Wazir appeals public not to take coronavirus lightly
Ajmal Wazir Khan said that if precautionary measures are taken, the virus can be eradicated
PESHAWAR (Dunya News) – Advisor Information Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ajmal Wazir Khan has said that people should be careful on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr and maintain social distancing as the threat of the virus still remains and it could spread further.
Talking to media in Peshawar, he said that the lockdown was eased keeping in view the economic situation of the people, not because the virus was no longer a threat. He urged people to be careful, maintain social distancing and avoid going to large public places because the virus is still very dangerous.
Ajmal Wazir Khan said that if precautionary measures are taken, the virus can be eradicated but in case they are ignored and the virus starts to spread, the government will be compelled to take tough decisions.
The Minister also criticized opposition leaders saying that those who preached from their drawing rooms are nowhere to be seen today. He said that a leader is one who leads from the front line yet the opposition leaders are yet to visit any hospital. He said that even on the occasion of Eid, government representatives are working and serving the people.
Provincial Information Adviser Ajmal Wazir said the government was celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with simplicity on account of the coronavirus and the plane crash in Karachi.
