PM: (War against Coronavirus will be won with united resolve of nation: PM)

March 27, 2020

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed optimism that war against Coronavirus will be won with united resolve of the nation.

Talking to anchorpersons after chairing the meeting of National Coordination Committee here on Friday, he said incremental response is essential because of peculiar circumstances of Pakistan.

He said total lockdown is not feasible keeping in view the condition of poor people in the country. He said today all four provinces, Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan collectively decided that there will be no inter-province restriction on transportation of goods.

Similarly, industry allied with edible items will also be free from any kind of restriction. However, passenger traffic will remain off the roads. The Prime Minister announced to form a youth force of volunteers dubbed Corona Relief Tigers Force.

He said its members will be recruited through PM Office portal and registration will start from March 31. He also announced establishment of a fund for Coronavirus.

Imran Khan said he will open an account in the State Bank of Pakistan next week where donations from overseas Pakistanis will be collected to steer the country out of economic crisis.
