Pakistan’s US Ambassador, Dr. Asad Majeed Khan, said the government’s timely and thorough intervention has helped contain the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
In an interview with an American newspaper Wall Street Journal, Majeed Khan said Pakistan’s government is ready to fix any possible situation.
He said Pakistan’s exports had started to pick up, the exchange rate had stabilized, industrial activity was rising, but COVID-19’s arrival had a negative impact, and the economy was impacted.
Pakistani Ambassador further stated that Prime Minister Imran Khan had stressed the need for developing countries to devise a comprehensive and coordinated strategy to tackle the economic effects of coronavirus, a strategy that would gain the assistance of all countries in tackling the economic crisis and safeguarding their health sector.
It should be noted that the overall death toll in Pakistan reached 450 while the number of patients diagnosed with the virus exceeds 20,000.
