Islamabad: Pakistan’s controversy over whether or not Kovid-19 is spreading so badly in the country has been a pilgrimage from Iran. But a report has emerged showing that the government’s handling of returning patients was poor. The report was prepared by the Islamabad Policy Institute (IPI). The initial announcement was that Kovid would return home after 28 days of quarantine. But many have been in quarantine for 50 days, according to the report.
Pakistan Muslim League leader Khwaja Asif alleged that the pilgrims were brought to the country without adequate security checks. Authorities have denied the allegation. At the time of the Kovid outbreak in Iran, more than 7,000 people came from Iran to Pakistan. According to the report, in the Iranian border town of Taftan, the government is constantly trying to avoid the responsibility of checking pilgrims.
In the past, Pakistan’s borders have been accused of inadequate facilities. The World Health Organization has made that allegation. However, the IPI report states that all the people who stayed in Quarantine together in Taftan were responsible for the delay.
