He said we must create a balance between hunger and measures to control the pandemic.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Thursday that the lockdown was not a cure for a novel Coronavirus pandemic but a temporary measure.

The prime minister leads a high-level meeting where medical equipment supplies to hospitals and other issues are discussed.

Speaking on that occasion, Imran Khan said that the threat to our population was far greater than hunger and poverty than the threat from lockdown.

“We need to strike a balance between preventive measures to prevent pandemics and hunger,” he said.

The prime minister said locking was a temporary measure and that it was not a panacea for coronavirus, adding that we must make decisions based on the reality and the situation of the people.

He emphasized the implementation of SOPs regarding the control and prevention measures against coronavirus to protect people’s lives.

Special Assistant for Health Dr. Zafar Mirza gave a detailed explanation at the meeting about the statistics of corona virus patients in the country, confirmed cases, geographic distribution, number of tests and proportional increase in cases.

The demands of the automotive sector especially motorcycle manufacturers and mall associations were also conveyed to the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister reiterated that the government policy regarding locking was very clear. He said all sectors would be facilitated without putting people’s lives in danger associated with people from the white collar class and the poor.
