According to details, senior PML-N leader Khawaja Asif wrote to Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser, demanding that a joint parliamentary session be called in view of the emerging coronavirus threat.
The letter by Khawaja Asif states that more than 1.25 million people have been infected and 4600 people have died due to the coronavirus worldwide.
