Pakistan responsible for 50% of all ‘imported’ Coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom

According to a government spokesperson, passengers were directed to wear masks and those with high temperatures were not allowed to board the flights

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan now accounts for over 50% of the total ‘imported’ Coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom, reported The Telegraph. About 190 flights have landed in the United Kingdom from Pakistan since March 1. Public health records revealed that a total of 30 people who had come to the UK from abroad have been diagnosed with the Wuhan Coronavirus. As per reports, the deadly disease has infected 3,09,360 people and claimed 43,414 lives.

Reportedly, several passengers from Pakistan had to be admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICUs) upon their arrival in Britain. Earlier, Emirates had cancelled its flights from Pakistan after 30 travellers were diagnosed with Coronavirus on a flight to Hong Kong. As per reports, around 2 Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flights arrive in the UK every day. Even though initial flights were meant to evacuate stranded British and Pakistani nationals, later, flight operations were resumed for daily travel.

According to a government spokesperson, passengers were directed to wear masks and those with high temperatures were not allowed to board the flights. “The new health measures at the border are informed by science, backed by the public and designed to keep us all safe. We are seeing a high level of compliance and we expect this to continue as the vast majority of people will play their part to help”, he was quoted as saying.
