Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan says the government has decided not to shut down factories and businesses despite a spike in coronavirus infections and deaths in the country.

“We don’t want to lead people to death due to hunger, while saving them from coronavirus,” Mr Khan said and in the same breath made an impassioned appeal that the nation should join hands with the government and defeat the second wave of coronavirus while strictly observing SOPs that primarily require wearing face mask at public places.

The prime minister was speaking to media persons at the Chief Minister Secretariat during his visit to Lahore on Wednesday, where he also held a one-on-one meeting with Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and discussed with the latter administrative and political affairs of the province.
