Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday said the federal government’s strategy to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country is “incomprehensible”.

The chief minister, addressing a press conference in the capital, said the coronavirus situation in the country was getting more serious by the day, as he called on the government to change its strategy.

The chief minister said inter-provincial transport should be banned for at least two weeks, just as Sindh had banned inter-provincial transport earlier.

The chief minister said in the National Coordination Committee meeting held a few days earlier, he had recommended putting a stop to the intercity transport.

CM Shah said incoming flights from across the world should be stopped. “I had heard that flights were restricted to 20%, but when I left Karachi for Islamabad, the plane was full of passengers.”

The chief minister said the spread of coronavirus can not be halted through press statements.
