Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday urged the opposition to postpone its public meetings for at least two months and said “the rallies will not harm me but endanger the lives of people due to the fast spread of COVID-19”.

“The opposition thinks it can put pressure on me by holding rallies. That is not the case; but the rallies will endanger people’s lives,” he said while addressing the nation on TV after chairing a meeting of the National Coordination Committee on COVID-19.

According to the NCC, 3,138 people tested positive for coronavirus and 56 died of COVID-19 during the last 24 hours. As many as 51 patients died in hospital and five out of hospital.
