Its better to shift students from wuhan to another place in China, and if our govt is very poor and can't do anything just request chinese govt to do their screening for 15 days and then let them go to pakistan.#WuhanCoronavirus pic.twitter.com/Ip55OnhSko— Aisha Bajwa (@AyeshaB53627449) February 1, 2020
While some say Islamabad’s decision comes as a show of solidarity with its all-weather ally China at a time of global health emergency, however, those who are stuck there felt a pang of resentment.
Prophet's ﷺ directions regarding disease outbreaks are a good guide even 2day “If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it, but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place” (Bukhari & Muslim) Let us help those stuck there.— Dr. Arif Alvi (@ArifAlvi) January 31, 2020
