Pakistan’s war against the Novel Coronavirus still wages on. As of now, the Sindh government has been quite triumphant in imposing a comprehensive lockdown. With people falling victim to this mephitic virus, and no conscientious vaccine as a remedy, the government promulgates that the only way to defeat the virus is self-quarantine.
Nevertheless, it seems that these instructions do not transpire to perforate into the minds of some people. How? You will get to know by the end of this article.
Dealing With Coronavirus
On the order of Sindh Chief Minister, Syed Murad Ali Shah, the province is observing a lockdown amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Countries like China, Italy, and some other states of Europe and the United States have also tried similar lockdowns to tackle the virus.
However, some people in Pakistan are not contemplating this advice seriously, because some of them are still busy scouring the streets, as per routine and we have evidence for it.
Twitter user Salaar Khan recently posted a tweet, where it is seen that how locals are busy enjoying a cockfighting game.
Imran Khan: “Trust in me. I am thinking of plans every day. You don’t need to be forced into quarantine. You can do it yourself. We are a great nation.”

Meanwhile, there were reports that how a man just back from Iran defied the quarantine in Sukkur. In the same facility that was allocated for coronavirus suspects, he mingled with his friends and even took selfies. So much for social distancing and lockdown.
The man in circle is recently returned from Iran & tested #CoronaVirus positive. He is under treatment at quarantine facility Sukkur. Today his friends visited him, met & took selfies also.

Despite the implementation of the lockdown at midnight, Karachiites are still roaming the streets. As if the lockdown is not enough to alarm them.

It is up to us to pick what is good and what is bad for us. If countries like China can control coronavirus through self-isolation, so can we. Some patience and Pakistan will be corona-free soon
