COAS directs army to help civil administration defeat coronavirus

Pakistan stand firm with Kashmiri brethren: COAS Bajwa
RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Saturday ordered the army to fast-track operations to support the civil administration as the country struggles with a fast-spreading coronavirus outbreak in the country.
He said “The government’s efforts will only be successful if the citizens take safety measures themselves. It is the duty of every Pakistani to listen to the precautionary measures put out by the government and the health department,” he said.
He added that no danger can shake the resolve of a responsible and determined nation, pointing to China as an example.
“Pakistan Army as a part of the national effort will also be responsible. We, the Pakistan Army, believe it is our duty to protect the nation,” Gen Bajwa added.
Last week, the army chief had urged all concerned parties to “gear up preparations” to counter the virus. The Corps Commanders Conference had discussed emerging situation with regards to COVID-19 and the preventive measures taken by the Pakistan Army.
The army chief directed all concerned to gear up preparations in support of national effort to counter this pandemic in case of any eventuality.
