Following the first case of Coronavirus emerging in Karachi, Pakistan. Citizens are totally clueless with instilling fear, as to how the patients will be treated, if the virus outbreaks. Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani suggests the hostels within the metropolis vicinity be used for quarantine facilities.
Saeed Ghani’s Proposition!

He said: “The panic over the virus and the speed at which the number of cases is growing, subsequently, it is obvious that we cannot accommodate patients in all the hospitals.”
“Firstly, may God does not take us to such a stage. On the contrary, if need be, the provincial government will distribute masks to citizens,” Ghani added.
Fearing about the imminent deaths this virus has caused, Ghani said: “We will try our best to create awareness about the precautions [against coronavirus] among the people.”
