Earlier on Monday, the prime minister once again said that imposing lockdown wasn’t a solution to the coronavirus pandemic.
“When a country imposes lockdown restrictions, the spread of the coronavirus is slowed down,” he said by adding, “We, as a people, must realise that Pakistan is a poor country and we have no other choice but to reopen the businesses,”
According to him, the entire world has understood that lockdowns aren’t a solution.
