Since the government’s decision to ease lockdown, the COVID-19 situation has become worse in Pakistan. Apart from the government, people are not taking the necessary precautions. In order to come up with a solution, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar organized a meeting with top Pakistani TikTok stars to help create awareness regarding the rampant virus.
This step also drew severe backlash on social media. Rather than taking any strict preventive measures, the government took help from the TikTok stars.
The governor ensured a serious discussion regarding the pandemic and how our local TikTok stars can play an important role in creating awareness amongst masses. Well, we don’t know how these ‘entertainers’ will create awareness among the people when no one so far is able to give some peace of mind to these senseless Pakistanis.
However, on a lighter note, let’s see how these TikTok stars are planning to spread coronavirus awareness. We have come across a few coronavirus ‘awareness’ videos which leave you rolling on the floor.

Governor Punjab invited #TikTok stars to Governor House in Lahore, and reportedly asked the Tiktokers to tackle corona-virus misinformation.
Perhaps BC, Pakistan is the only F*** country in the world, where Tiktokers will take up the job of medical experts!

Also, in the coronavirus pandemic, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s decisions regarding tackling the lethal virus are rapidly changing every now and then. More than Pakistani people, our PM seems to be more confused than anyone else.
