PPP Leader Says Govt Faking Coronavirus Deaths To Get WHO Grants

  • 53

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Nabil Gabol has said that government was faking the coronavirus deaths because it signed an agreement with World Health Organisation (WHO), under which the affected family would get $ 3,000 per casualty by the international health body.

The PPP leader gave these remarks in his interview to journalist Adil Abbasi on his show. “Those who died from kidney issues and heart attack are also being counted in coronavirus death toll. This is happening because the affected family will get $ 3,000 from WHO,” he said.

He even went on to say that WHO has signed the said agreement with all the coronavirus-hit countries, not only with Pakistan.

Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Khurram Sherzaman had alleged that PPP-led government in Sindh was faking and manipulating the covod-19 death toll of the province.

The deadly coronavirus has claimed 733 lives in Pakistan, while 8,812 patients have recovered successfully and have been discharged from the hospitals.

The national tally of coronavirus confirmed cases has risen to 32,979, with the provincial governments of Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan confirming 11,868, 12,610, 5,021, 2,158 cases respectively. Meanwhile, 475 cases in Gilgit-Baltistan, 759 in Islamabad, and 88 in Kashmir have been reported to date.

    This criticism goes against all political parties including PPP that are currently ruling in different provinces. Shall we assume that all of these provincial governments are involved in this crime? Not only that, the doctors dealing with this pandemic also become highly controversial. If this is nothing more than political bickering of political parties against their rivals, the outcome of such foolish statements is going to mislead the people who are already bombarded with series of misinformation through different modes of social media. I will suggest Pakistan Medical Association to take up this case and submit its clarification on this subject.
