Local spread of virus poses serious threat: Liaquat Shahwani
In Balochistan, 49 out of a total of 186 patients of novel coronavirus had no foreign travel history. This was revealed by the spokesman government of Balochistan, Liaquat Shahwani during a press conference on Saturday evening.
Mr. Shahwani termed the local spread of deadly viruses as a serious threat to human lives in the province. Most of the coronavirus patients tested positive in Balochistan had a travel history of neighboring Iran. Over 6,000 Zaireen (Shia Pilgrims) had entered from Iran into Pakistan after the outbreak of pandemic in the neighboring country in February this year.
“People should stay at home otherwise, it would be very difficult to cope with the situation”, Mr. Shahwani cautioned.
Pakistan had closed its border with Iran on February 23rd this year to halt the spread of coronavirus in the country.
