Pakistan’s coronavirus tally has crossed 63,000 and officials are urging people to stay at home. As of Thursday, nearly 1,300 patients have died as well.
The country is, however, slowly resuming operations of its industries, markets and offices with SOPs. Prime Minister Imran Khan believes reopening businesses is the only way to let people earn their livelihood amid the pandemic.
