(TKG) − Pakistan confirmed its first two cases of novel coronavirus, a public health adviser to Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted Wednesday, February 26. “I can confirm first two cases of corona virus in Pakistan. Both cases are being taken care of according to clinical standard protocols & both of them are stable. No need to panic, things are under control”, tweeted health adviser Zafar Mirza. It was quoted in a statement issued by the southern Sindh province’s health department as saying that the first positive case was reported in Karachi in a 22-year-old male with a “history of travel to Iran where he has acquired the virus.” However, the health officials in Pakistan didn’t confirm where the second case was reported. Local media, on the other hand, was quoted that the second case was reported in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad. The virus has spread to more than 30 countries, killing over 2,700 and infecting 80,000, mostly in China. But new outbreaks in Europe, the Middle East and in Asia have fanned fears of the contagion taking hold in poor nations which lack the healthcare infrastructure to cope. The cases of coronavirus confirmed days after Islamabad closed its land border with Iran, where 19 people have died from the disease. Pakistan this week moved quickly to quarantine at least 270 people near the Iranian border after a group of pilgrims returned and briefly mixed with other residents.
