What is COVID-19? The response of climate minister Zartaj Gul leaves everyone in tears
LAHORE - COVID-19 means that the Corona Virus has 19 points that can be applied to any country based on their level of immunity," says Federal Minister for Climate Change Zartaj Gul during a current affairs show on PTV News.
On Saturday night, as soon as this bizarre statement was aired, the people took Twitter and started criticizing the PTI leader and saying that the minister did not even know what it was.
The minister's novel definition of the virus stirred a storm on social media. Actually, COVID-19 means 'Coronavirus disease 2019'. The 'CO' in the word stands for corona, 'VI' for the virus and 'D' for the disease. Formerly, this disease was referred to as ‘2019 novel coronavirus’ or ‘2019-nCoV.’
Some angry netizens say, the federal government has been accused of failing to do enough to raise awareness about the coronavirus, which is making the epidemic uncontrollable. How true is this accusation against the government? This can be gauged from the interpretation of COVID-19 by the minister.

If Zartaj Gul's ticket from the PTI was merit based, I really shudder at the thought of other candidates who were contenders for selection.— Mohammad Zaheer (@mzaheer88) June 20, 2020
