LAHORE, May 5 : Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar feels the nation is currently looking at two difficult situations: the deaths caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the economic crisis due to the countrywide lockdown.
“Small-scale businesses are finished,” Governor Sarwar said while addressing the media in Lahore Tuesday. “Vendors, shopkeepers and other business owners are tired of continuous financial losses.”
Sarwar said the federal government decided to ease the lockdown to let people jump-start their businesses.
He added that those politicking on the current situation will not be spared by the public. It’s mournful that politicians can’t gather under one platform even in such grave circumstances, he said.
The governor said public gatherings have increased in the last two weeks which might result in a spike in the coronavirus cases. “Public needs to follow the SOPs to stem the novel virus’ outbreak. The only way to win this fight is by staying at home.”
So far, the known virus cases have topped 21,000 across Pakistan with the death toll is nearing the 500 mark.
Provincial governments are gradually resuming various businesses, ensuring the factories reopened practice social distancing and other SOPs. In Sindh alone, more than 600 industrial units have resumed operations.
However, medical experts have warned the cases will spike at the end of May. The World Health Organisation has predicted 200,000 COVID-19 cases in Pakistan by July.
