Buzdar appeals people not to be slack


Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has stated that complete care is the only treatment of coronavirus. It is essential to use the face mask and follow the principle of social distancing as any slackness in this regard can affect others.
In a statement issued on Friday, the CM appealed to the citizens to realize their social responsibilities in the wake of the pandemic.
He asked the shopkeepers to not allow visitors without face masks. The government is trying to limit coronavirus by sealing off different areas, and the areas which will be free from this virus will be gradually de-sealed.
He appealed to residents of the sealed areas to cooperate with administration and police for their own safety.
Chief Minister Usman Buzdar maintained that self-description for the treatment of this virus could be injurious to health. Meanwhile, the negative effects of steroids and anti-viral medicines could increase the intensity of the disease and it is better to consult a certified medical practitioner in case of an increase of corona disease.
The Punjab government is ensuring the availability of medicines and strict action will be taken for hoarding oxygen, medical equipment and medicines required for the treatment of coronavirus, the CM added.
Usman Buzdar has directed to stabilize the prices of wheat and flour in the province and made it clear that any unjustified increase will not be tolerated.
Chief Minister Usman Buzdar directed the Food Department as well as the administrative officers to ensure regular monitoring and asked the price-control magistrates to take action against those involved in the unjustified increase in flour-price.
Similarly, administrative machinery should ensure availability of wheat and flour at fixed rates.
The CM made it clear that prices of wheat and flour will also be monitored by him and he will check the rates by conducting raids when required. The people cannot be left at the mercy of illegal profiteers, he emphasised.
Chief Minister Usman Buzdar asserted that an increase in rates is unacceptable after a decrease in petroleum products. The line departments should proactively perform and avoid lip-service. Public interest is dear to the government and steps for providing relief to the people should be visible at the grassroots, the CM added.
The CM has condemned the blast near Ghotki Railway Station. He expressed a deep sense of sorrow over the loss of lives and extended sympathies to the bereaved heirs.
He also prayed for early recovery of the injured.
Usman Buzdar also expressed a deep sense of sorrow over the death of Chaudhary Nazir Ahmed, President Akhbar Farosh Union, Lahore. He extended sympathies to the bereaved family and said that Ch. Nazir Ahmed rendered worthwhile services for the welfare of newspapers’ sellers.
Chief Minister Usman Buzdar telephonically contacted Nishat Ahmed Khan Daha, MPA and condoled with him the death of his brother and nephew. The CM prayed to Allah Almighty to rest the departed souls in eternal peace and grant courage to the heirs to bear the losses with equanimity.
