Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar Tuesday said relaxation in lockdown does not mean novel coronavirus is controlled as cases are increasing in Punjab and all other provinces.
The governor talked to media in Lahore and stressed that people should be helped regardless of their class and political affiliation under current circumstances.
“We must change our lifestyle according to the situation as the epidemic still exists and we are going through a tough phase. We have to win the war against coronavirus by staying at home.
“The government has taken important steps for financial help of the needy as the entire nation is looking towards us. Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) have distributed five hundred and fifty thousand ration bags so far.
“Hopefully political and business figures will also help people as small trades have been ruined due to the pandemic.
“People must adopt safety measures against coronavirus which is a dangerous disease. Several families have died of coronavirus in Europe.”
