Coronavirus: Updates and Precautions

887 coronavirus cases have been reported till Tuesday (24 March 2020). Pakistan is experiencing a complete lockdown in every part! This is a very good initiative taken by the government. Chief Minister Usman Buzdar confirmed the number of cases reported in his tweet.


According to Chief Minister Usman Buzdar Sindh has reported 395 cases, 249 in Punjba, 38 in KPK, 110 in Balochistan, 80 in Gilgit Baltistan and 15 in Islamabad

However very few death cases have been reported in Sindh, Balochistan, KPK and Gilgit Baltistan. Unluckily we have no vaccine for coronavirus. Yet prevention is better than cure, so we can take safety measures in order to stay safe.

In a morning show, Muskurati Morning hosted by Sahir Lodhi, the host emphasized on the following precautions to stay safe:

-Keep your hands clean. Wash your hands after every 15 to 20 minutes.

-Avoid shaking hands.

  • -Sneeze in your arms.
  • -Maintain social distance.
  • -Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. This is because contaminated hands can transfer virus to your nose, eyes or mouth, resulting in germs being transferred to your body and making you sick

Stay home to stay safe. Coronavirus is a deadly disease which has killed up to 16000 people globally and 377,000 are infected. People are instructed to remain within their homes and only leave in case of emergencies.

It’s been almost 5 days since I came back from my shaukat khanum fund raising US tour. I had chills when I was there. I got really worried so when I arrived at Lahore airport, they had a proper procedure for all the travellers to go through under the screening. Then I got checked myself and waited 2 days for results. Alhamdulillah test turned out negative. But this whole process wasn’t that easy. Stress, anxiety, sleepless nights and most importantly that fear… I know it’s a crucial time, not only for Pakistan but actually for the whole humanity. There is no vaccine that has yet been dicovered for this virus, all we can do is self care and follow proper measures. We must take it seriously. I am more worried about those people who survive on daily wages, now they don’t have any source to feed themselves and their families. They can’t even get checked themselves because of affordability. I’ll request the government of Pakistan to think about them and try to arrange a team who can reach them and get them checked free of cost. This is not a time to panic and this time too shall pass by Insha ALLAH. For now social distancing is the only way for our safer future. We won’t hug for some time so we can meet more happily later… Have faith in ALLAH and do take every possible precaution for yourself, for your family and for the entire humanity… “Beshak ALLAH is the greatest” #washyourhands #wearmask #socialdistancing
