LAHORE:Punjab Information Minister Fayyazul Hassan Chohan has said that the government has acknowledged active services of the journalist community against coronavirus, adding that work is being done on a special package to the media representatives on the orders of the Punjab chief minister. In his statement on Wednesday, Fayyazul Hassan Chohan said that Pakistani government had limited the spread of the coronavirus by timely measures, but despite that the global pandemic had affected all the fields, including health, education and employment. The minister said the government had started a Taleem Ghar channel to save the academic year of the students and persuaded private schools to cut fees and not to lay off teachers.

He called the protective kits by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to the media representatives a joke, adding that it was the cheap joke by N League by naming facemask, soap and hand sanitizer as a complete protective kit.

Fayyazul Hassan said that the people were satisfied with measures taken by the Buzdar government against the coronavirus despite negative propaganda by the N League. He also said that all kinds of medical, technical and financial assistance was being provided to the Health Department.
