In a series of tweets on Sunday, Dr Mirza said the booths would provide answers to queries about coronavirus. He said another landmark in a very short time was the completion of coronavirus clinical care and prevention guidelines. “It includes full instructions on case definition, inpatient/outpatient treatment, handling of diagnostic samples and even home care. In order to provide assistance to the Pakistani community in China, the Embassy of Pakistan has established hotlines which may be contacted,” he added.

The Special Assistant on National Health said around one hundred other countries are not evacuating their citizens from Wuhan, China.

10 Pakistani students return from China

Ten Pakistani students, stranded in China in the wake of coronavirus, have arrived to Lahore. These students were living in China for the educational purpose.

These students came to Lahore Airport from China via Bankok through Thai Airlines.

The Pakistani students said that the international students in China are facing problems, and that every country has called its students back from China.

Currently, thousands of Pakistanis are stranded in Wuhan, the epicenter of coronavirus.
