Govt says its decision to not evacuate Pakistani nationals from China ‘not final’

A day after the government announcement that Pakistani nationals will not be evacuated from novel coronavirus-hit China for the fear of the epidemic spreading across Pakistan, the Senate was informed that the decision was not final. “If the situation changes, we will evacuate the Pakistani students on its basis,” said leader of the House in the Senate Shibli Faraz.

About the concern over financial problems being faced by the students, Senator Faraz said 840 dollars had been deposited in the bank account of each university student in China so that they may order food online.
