She said facilities to diagnose the disease have been provided in Quetta, Karachi, Islamabad, and Lahore. She said it is the resolve of Prime Minister Imran Khan that we should not be afraid of the coronavirus rather fight it.

The Special Assistant said proper awareness will be created amongst the general public in order to ensure their protection from the virus.

She said we should keep in mind that the recovery rate of this disease is over ninety-eight percent. She also shared a Dua to get rid of the virus saying there is no need to be a worry. She said this virus is curable however; taking care of cleanliness is of vital importance.

However, Dr Mirza had assured the nation via a couple of tweets that both the earlier coronavirus patients undergoing treatment in Pakistan were “stable and improving”.

The pandemic has triggered panic around the world after it killed 2,700 people around the world (mostly in China) and affected more than 80,000 around the world. Iran has emerged as a major hotspot, with 139 reported cases and 19 deaths.
