Govt capable to repatriate 7000 Pakistanis

He further said that the opening of remaining airports has enhanced our capacity.

That means Pakistan has become capable to bring back six to seven thousand Pakistanis from abroad every week.

The Foreign Minister said efforts are afoot to bring back the stranded Pakistanis in the Gulf at the earliest.

He said screening is being done at the airports and Quarantine facilities have also been expanded there.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the coronavirus has badly affected the economy of the world.

He said this pandemic will also increase pressure on Pakistan’s economy as it has brought to a standstill the economic activity and reduced our exports.

The Foreign Minister said Pakistan has increased its testing capacity for coronavirus. He said we had earlier testing capacity of three thousand but it will reach twenty to thirty thousand by May.

Meanwhile, a video conference of SAARC Member States on Pakistan’s proposal is being held today.

They will discuss the COVID-19 pandemic.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Health Services, Dr. Zafar Mirza will lead the Pakistani delegation in the conference.
