No compromise on supply of essential items Prime Minister Imran Khan

PM Imran Khan on Friday emphasized uninterrupted supply of essential items during the countrywide preventive restrictions on movement of people and transport during the Coronavirus pandemic.

PM was speaking during his visit to the recently established National Command and Operation Center (NCOC). The total number of confirmed cases in the country on Friday (3- Apr) topped 2,686 and 40 deaths.

The PM said, there must be no compromise on availability of essential food items and sustainability of supply lines throughout the country.

The PM’s Special Assistant on Health had last month while announcing the decisions taken at the National Security Committee (NSC) for containing the spread of the viral disease cautioned about the possibility of shortage of food and other essential items, although no major shortages have been reported so far essentially because the government had directed that all businesses producing essential supplies be kept open and functional, and movement of cargo vehicles be allowed unhindered during the restrictions period. But there are apprehensions that shortages may still happen in coming days and weeks.

PM Imran Khan, during the meeting warned hoarders. Hoarders and smugglers will be made an example, he warned.
