He said that it was impossible to export sugar without Prime Minister Imran Khan’s approval

KARACHI (Dunya News) – Sindh Barrister government spokesman Murtaza Wahab said on Thursday that the word corruption cannot be written without governing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) now.

Speaking to media in Karachi on Thursday, he said that sugar exports would not be possible without Prime Minister Imran Khan’s approval and asked who would reduce billions of rupees in losses.

The spokesman said that the prime minister had not fulfilled his promise to Sindh, adding that the prime minister did not need to pay attention to matters, but rather he had to take action.

He said sugar was sold at Rs 80 before the prime minister paid attention, adding that due to government policy, today sugar was sold at Rs 90 and Rs 92 per kg.

“When will you respond to losses due to the scandal over the price of wheat, sugar and oil,” he said, adding that the embezzlement of money and the PTI government went hand in hand.

“Every time the PM notices something that just disappears,” he added.

The government adopted a sans locking strategy to combat Covid-19 | Instant News

PESHAWAR: The government has decided to relax the so-called lockdown from Monday (today) without having the right strategy to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

A government official seems confused to explain the reasons behind allowing business and lifting restrictions on movement of people for four days a week, namely Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and once again enforcing lockdown for the remaining three days. Policies that confuse both the federal and provincial governments have forced doctors to ask authorities to review the decision, fearing relaxation in locking could worsen the situation when the number of Covid-19 cases has increased.

Experts observe that the government must have the right plan to deal with the situation after removing the lock to overcome the pandemic instead of just displaying figures in the media. The Covid-19 outbreak began in the city of Wuhan, China in November 2019 and spread to other countries where cases were reported from January 2020 onwards.

Pakistan reported its first case on February 26. The government introduced lockdowns throughout the country from 1 April. Officially, the lockdown has been loosened up in Pakistan starting May 9. A number of countries in Europe and Asia also relax the lockdown. The majority of countries have enacted laws to impose fines on individuals for not wearing face masks and not the following long distance social rules.

Most people who carry a corona infection have no symptoms. They will probably have lifelong immunity. This can be checked by a rapid antibody test. In due course, these people will represent the majority of the population.

They are very unlikely to get the disease again or transmit it. Ideally, antibody tests should be carried out on a large scale to get a picture of herd immunity in the population. Countries like China use antibody tests to issue the necessary immune permits to travel.

PCR diagnostic tests of oral & nasal swabs are still used as the gold standard to confirm newly infected people. Thus the test, tracing and isolation will continue.

The UK has developed and is testing a Contact Tracking Application that uses mobile bluetooth. This application will store data of all individuals who are close to someone and can be used to identify them if the person is infected.

South Korea used the same type of smartphone application very early in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. France has developed a smartphone application that identifies hotspot areas. Thus, people can check about the infection status of an area before visiting it. This data can also be used to decide how strict locking actions should be carried out in certain areas. It is very relevant to implement these steps in practice in Pakistan and Covid-19 which will likely haunt us for many more months.
