Over 1000 Pakistani students enrolled in Wuhan have been trapped due to the suspension of air and ground traffic by China. A group of Pakistani students in Wuhan shared a video of their plight recently asking the Pak government to help them. Food shortage is also getting an issue in Wuhan as no vehicle is allowed to enter or exit the city.
The Pak government has contacted the families of infected students and has ensured that full support will be given to them. China will also give full support possible to Pakistani students trapped in Wuhan.
Also, Dr. Zafar has clarified that no Coronavirus case has been detected in Pakistan yet. 4 individuals with flu were admitted to different hospitals in Pakistan. They were moved to quarantine areas upon suspicion of being potential virus carriers. Their samples were collected and sent to China for testing. But the reports denied the presence of the virus in any of the individuals.
