Infections have been reported in 203 countries and territories since the first cases were identified in China in December 2019. Pakistan is also one of the countries fighting against COVID-19 with limited resources. The country is under a partial lockdown with almost zero business activities on the roads. Under such a situation, the most affected ones are the workers who work on daily wages.
“During this lockdown, people have become jobless. I own a restaurant named Dar’s Delighto on Pia Road in Lahore. Nevertheless, people who don’t have a job now, can come there and eat food for free,” added Dar.
