Flights From China Resume Arriving In Pakistan
Flights from China to Pakistan have resumed, arriving at Islamabad International Airport with some of the Pakistanis who had been stranded in that country. The first such flight brought 69 passengers to Pakistan from China, and they were received by the PM’s Special Assistant on Health Dr. Zafar Mirza, as well as China’s Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing.
They ensured that the standard operating procedures decided upon were being implemented and the passengers arriving were attended to.
This resumption of air links comes after a three-day suspension due to the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the coronavirus a global health emergency.
According to Dr. Mirza, Pakistan can now handle the possibility of passengers who might be infected with the virus, after the arrival of 1,000 testing kits from China. Moreover, some 199 health information booths have been established at various airports to assist passengers who might have concerns about the illness.
