Prime Minister Imran Khan announced the opening of the Chaman-Spain-Boldak border between Pakistan and Afghanistan, allowing trucks from Pakistan to go to Afghanistan.
In a message on the social networking site Totter, he expressed solidarity with the Afghan people in view of the Coronavirus, but his message could not be clarified whether the opening of the border would allow people to move.
"Despite a global outbreak like Corona (COVID-19), we are fully committed to supporting our Afghan brothers and sisters," the Prime Minister said.
In his message, he added that in this state of crisis we stand firmly on the side of Afghanistan.
It is to be noted that several steps have been taken by the Government of Pakistan to prevent the spread of the global outbreak of the Coronavirus.
In this connection, on March 2, Pakistan closed the Pak-Afghan border at Chaman for seven days when Corona virus-infected cases surfaced in Afghanistan.
Later on March 13, National Security Committee meetings announced extraordinary measures to prevent the spread of the virus, including the decision to close Pakistan's western border with Afghanistan and Iran for 14 days.
It is thought that 22 people have been confirmed to be infected with the Coronavirus in Afghanistan so far, of which one patient has recovered.
On the other hand, 453 people have been infected with Coronavirus in Pakistan out of which 4 have recovered and 3 have lost their lives.
The global outbreak from China has swept the lights of 10,030 lives worldwide, while the number of people affected by the disease is more than 244,000.
