Contain now

Now that two confirmed cases of Covid-19 have been reported in Nasiri Wala, a hamlet in Tehsil Esa Khel, Mianwali, the district administration must swing into action to limit the virus from spreading further. The onus lies on the relevant corners to shore up preventive measures in the area without any further delay. The entire area must be cordoned off. Ration and other amenities of life must be provided to each and every household without any disruption.

The entire population must be tested so that the spread of the disease is detected and halted in a timely manner. It is unfortunate that most of the individuals are still taking this panic situation very lightly. Law-enforcement must tighten the noose against those who are found violating the lockdown measures. The inter-district and intra-district movement of the people should be restricted with immediate effect. Undoubtedly, the authorities are doing their bit to contain the epidemic but without the support and cooperation of the masses the fight against the deadly outbreak cannot be won.
