The PM regretted on poor public response to the government’s preventive measures. He lamented that the majority of people were flouting the SOPs of COVID-19, thinking the virus was just a common flu. “If we continue to ignore SOPs, then we are putting the lives of our aged people and those already suffering from diabetes and blood pressure in danger.”
The Prime Minister is not at all supportive of Lock down and he again highlighted that lockdowns were not a solution to the pandemic COVID-19. “Although lockdown restrictions slow down the spread of the virus, we must also realise that Pakistan is a poor country and that we had no choice but to reopen the country.

The PM again highlighted that Pakistan could not afford lockdown due to COVID-19 and businesses must keep open to run the wheel of economy and save people, especially daily wage earners and traders, from hunger. He, however, said, “Keep your business open but it is my appeal to adhere to the government SOPs must till July and August,” and “Only precautionary measures can help defeat coronavirus.”
