Punjab Minister for Colonies Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan has asked the people not to get panicked unnecessarily due to the coronavirus danger.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore on Tuesday, he said the authorities are active and in touch with the public to fight the pandemic which has already claimed more than 3,600 lives across the world.

Spreading of awareness about the coronavirus is a top priority and all the agencies of the province are working together to fight the virus.

The minister said that Punjab was completely safe as no case of coronavirus has been reported in the province.

There were several rumours about the outbreak of coronavirus in the country as well as in Punjab province, he said, as he urged the people not to be misled by baseless reports and be afraid.

Chohan showed the determination that Pakistan will defeat coronavirus like it defeated terrorism.

At least nine more persons were tested positive for the deadly disease in Karachi on Monday, pushing the total number of cases to 13 in Sindh and 16 in Pakistan.

One patient who contracted the COVID-19 has successfully recovered and has been sent home.

The six persons who were reported to be infected on Monday reached Karachi from Syria via Doha while three others arrived in the city from London via Dubai.

Zafar Mirza informed that the new patients had remained in contact with a person who had already tested positive for the deadly disease.
