Statement by Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan on Coronavirus Outbreak.


Since the outbreak of the coronavirus in Wuhan, China, the Chinese government and Pakistani government are working closely to manage the situation. So far more than 500 students and citizens of Pakistan in Wuhan, they are safe and sound. They are well attended and looked after by the local government of the province as well as the central government. Pakistani Embassy Beijing is also following the situation and providing whatever assistance to the Pakistani students and citizens in Wuhan. Right now, the Chinese Government and the Pakistani government are in close coordination to extend all the due and necessary assistance for their life, study and stay in China. Right now we are also following the Chinese community in Pakistan. We have found 3 suspicious cases but there is no confirmed case of this virus in Pakistan. And I appreciate the Pakistani government, in particular the ministry of Health, monitoring the situation very closely. And both the governments of China and Pakistan are exchanging and sharing information regarding possible medical assistance and medial preparations. I believe with the understanding and support of the Pakistani nation, the Chinese government and people will have the confidence, determination to overcome this temporary difficulty. And we will have the normal life very soon.
