NOWSHERA: The time of self-isolation was very difficult and stressful from the test of coronavirus till the arrival of results, says Assistant Commissioner Nowshera Hajira Sami.

She had decided to self-isolate her few days ago as she suspected that she has developed symptoms like that of coronavirus patient. She spent a stressful time in self-isolation until her test results came back as negative which was a big relief for her and her family.

Hajira says the whole world is fighting the pandemic and Pakistan has also adopted measures to protect its people against the dangerous disease and closed bazaars, markets and other places where people can come into contact with each other and are exposed to the virus. She said the lack of precaution on part of people can cause quick spread of the disease. That is why, she said, the government has decided in principle to enforce lockdown and protect the people from the virus.

The assistant commissioner appealed to the people to show more responsibility and adopt precaution to get rid of this situation as soon as possible. She said the district administration of Nowshera is strictly enforcing the lockdown. She hoped that the people will cooperate with the administration to ensure containment of the disease.
