A man suspected to have contracted the coronavirus has been admitted to the Nishtar Hospital in Multan, the National Institute of Health (NIH) stated in a press release issued on Saturday.
According to Multan and South Punjab’s Focal Person for Epidemic Diseases Dr Atta ur Rehman, a 40-year-old Chinese man, Feng Fen, was shifted from the Chinese camp in the Industrial Estate to Nishtar Hospital last night. The man had returned to Pakistan from Wuhan 10 days ago.
Does Pakistan needs to worry about the coronavirus?
Yes. Every day 41 direct and indirect flights from China come to Pakistan. Even though the coronavirus hasn’t been announced as a global problem yet, it’s better that Pakistan starts taking measures against it now.
