Amid the probable tension and worse health situations, Karachi is soon to face severe weather conditions as well. It seems like hoping for the best and expecting the worst has become the fate of the people of the metropolis.
From being home to gang-war, terrorism, and whatnot; now the deadly Coronavirus is threatening the safety of Karachiites.
Rain to make it worse for Karachitites!
The constant emergence of Coronmavirus cases eventually forced the authorities to put Karachi on a three-day lockdown. Keeping this in mind and knowing how Karachi gets after rain, the situation can get worse than ever.
Nonetheless, the current weather predictions along with the Chinese virus might create chaos among the masses. Reports reveal that Karachi is about to face a thunderstorm and heavy rainfall in the next 72 hours.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) announced that the following cities are expected to experience heavy dust storms and rainfall; Karachi, Sukkur, Dadu, Larkana, and Hyderabad.
Moreover, the PMD has forecasted that cloudy weather will remain in Karachi till the coming Sunday. The minimum temperature recorded is 23 degrees Celsius; with the average falling from 31 to 33 degrees Celsius.
According to the PMD, winds have been blowing from the north-western side; maintaining a speed of 10 to 14 km/h. There also are predictions that several parts of Punjab are likely to face rain as well.
Since the Coronavirus outbreak, more than 500 positive cases have been recorded in Pakistan. However, Coronavirus has sadly taken lives of five people in Pakistan. With 150 cases in Punjab and more than 350 cases in Sindh; Pakistan is on the verge of a complete lockdown.
World, during the Coronavirus outbreak!
With people ridden up in beds, the work pace has eventually slowed down. Precisely, fluently running businesses and the workforce in public and private sectors are near to cease, fully.
People might end up on the shore of bankruptcy, by paying over-burdening medical bills in this turmoil.
What’s even more alarming is that the governments around the globe are considering it a health crisis and not an economic one. For starters, the drying of supply chains is causing businesses, running on smaller levels, to break.
Without a doubt, the closure of factories in China resulted in a lower level of output in the country’s Purchasing Manager’s Index.
In this crippling world economy, it seems that the Coronavirus has somehow aligned itself parallel to the recent crude oil crisis between Saudi Arabia and Russia. The feud later resulted in the nosediving of oil prices, globally.
With more than 500,000 cases expected in the US in the next 250 days, let’s just pray we survive this epidemic and the people we love stay unharmed.
