ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz Thursday said that the coronavirus is a national issue and reminds the opposition they have been advocating for a complete lockdown. In a tweet, the minister insisted the virus should not be put aside for the sake of politics. He also emphasised that the opposition should reconsider its decision to hold meetings and rallies. “You were advocating a complete lockdown, don't take a U-turn today.
