Previously in January, when the coronavirus had not spread out all over the world, Pakistani students in China had actually stated that they were frightened and were “being kept in one room.” It was found out that a few of the students had actually been evaluated for coronavirus amidst a hysteria that had actually spread out throughout the world.

When the news broke out that the students remained in a tight spot, Unique Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health, Dr Zafar Mirza had actually stated that it was not recommended to leave nationals from China, keeping in mind that Beijing would show accountable behaviour and not end up being a part in spreading out the infection.
