Let us tell you that coronavirus, has killed more than 1,000 people and infected about 50,000 people since its outbreak in China. Khan on Wednesday night tweeted that we have issued a directive to our Foreign Office and the Ministry of Overseas to do everything possible for our students who are stranded in the city of Wuhan. Pakistan stands with the people and government of China in difficult times. Khan also expressed support for China and promised every help to deal with the deadly virus.
He said in another tweet that we are providing every material and moral support to China, as China has always stood by us during all our trials. According to the Foreign Office, more than 28,000 Pakistani students, including 500 in Wuhan, are studying in China.
According to reports, some of the aggrieved students, through social media, were constantly asking the Pakistan government to help them come back. Pakistani students from a Chinese medical university were terrified as patients infected with the deadly virus were transferred to a building near their university. According to the report, Islamabad has approached Chinese authorities with requests to shift those patients elsewhere, although the university has not been named in the report. The report said that Pakistan People’s Party MLA Bahramand Khan Tangi became emotional on the issue. “My nephew is in China and my whole family is upset because of the virus outbreak in China.”
