PM convey message to public by saying that half of the hospitals are
going to be filled and cases are still growing up day by day and patient are going to ventilator. If we will not take step to stop outdoor activities then it will keep on spreading and we cannot control it.

Its duty of every Pakistan to play his or her role to combat this disease and defend peoples.
