Corona Pandemic In Pakistan
“O Mankind, there has to come to you, instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers.”
Corona Virus (Covid-19) is a newly discovered species of viruses that have become a hot issue globally that started in China. There are many different kinds and some causes of diseases. Basically, coronavirus is a group of large viruses that are responsible for normally causing disease in mammals and birds. Due to the recent corona Virus attacks, thousands of people have died as a result of this disease left untreated and unchecked.
Covid-19 appeared in Wuhan, a city in China, in December 2019. Although health officials are still tracking the exact source of this new coronavirus, an early hypothesis thought it may be linked to a seafood market in Wuhan, China.
“You can do anything if you have enthusiasm.”
The virus circulates in animals and it enters into humans through animal contact. After entering into humans through air, food, and water. It passes from the respiratory canal and enters into the lungs where it starts an infection. The early symptoms include coughing, sneezing, cold, flu and fever, that it causes breathing difficulties damaging the lungs.
“And fear the trail that shall not afflict those alone who among do you wrong, and know that verily Allah severe in chastising.”
In severe cases, it can cause pneumonia, multiple organ failures and death. The incubation period of the virus is thought to be between 1 and 14 days it is contagious before symptoms appear. There are no prompt symptoms soon after the virus enters the human systems.
Pakistan reported its first coronavirus case on February 26. With the passage of time death toll increased majority of Pakistan cases were the result of a recent visit to neighbouring Iran, which is the worst-hit Asian country after China.
The number of patients in Pakistan, by comparison, is nowhere near the tally in Iran and most European countries. By and large, we have been successful in preventing the unconfined spread that, if happens may prove disastrous for the world fifth most-populous country which is already struggling with a teetering economy.
World Health Organization (WHO) recommends basic hygiene such as washing hands with soap and water and covering your mouth with your elbow when sneezing or coughing. Maintain ‘ Social distancing ’ keeping at least one meter (three feet) between yourself and others – particularly if they are coughing or sneezing, and avoid touching your face, eyes and mouth with unwashed hands. We should urge the masses to follow local safety measures besides these measures.
Our Prophet Muhammad SAW had said 400 years ago:
“Purification is half of Faith.”
Reservations have been expressed by both local and international media about the measures being taken by the government, particularly his constant refusal to impose a National Lockdown. The Prime Minister has time and again justified his decision by saying that he fears the potential economical fallout of a lockdown. He said:
“Pakistan’s (economic) situation is not the same as that is the U.S or Europe. There is poverty in our country, with 25 per cent of the population living in extreme poverty.” He said in his first national address after a virus outbreak, observing that a national Quarantine could result in the poor ‘dying from hunger’.
The government has announced a multiple trillion rupees relief package, allocating 200 billion rupees for the labour class, in addition to calling on the private sector not to lay off labourers. Under the package, some 10 million people, categorized under low-income groups, will get a lump sum amount initially for a period of four months.
The relief package comes in addition to safety measures being taken both at the federal and provincial level, including setting up temporary hospitals and isolation centres to accommodate thousands of patients in case of a spike in cases. The Pakistan government has also suspended flight operations, both domestic and international level, to restrict the possible introduction of new cases via travellers.
The beautiful verse of Holy Qur’an says:
“Verily, with hardship comes ease.”
By the grace of Allah, we have overcome this disease. Our educational institute, bazaars, marriage hall, shopping centres are all open today. By following precautionary measures, we have defeated his disease. Still, we need much care to save ourselves and our children from this horrible pandemic.
“Do not let your difficulties fill you with anxiety, after all, it is only in the darkest nights that stars shine more brightly.”
