1. Is the government of #Iran pushing citizens of #Iraq #Bahrain #KSA #UAE #Afghanistan out the way it is pushing #Pakistani #zaireen out?

2. Why is PM #ImranKhan's govt unable to engage with #Tehran or ask it to coordinate return of our citizens w/out risking #COVID19 spread?
@Office_AQPk #Pakistan is the only country in the world where the head of government has called for lifting sanctions on #Iran due to #COVID19 (despite evidence the sanctions & outbreak are not linked). But PM #ImranKhan is unable or won't discuss treatment of #Pakistani #zaireen with #Tehran

I wrote for @PostEverything about the eye-opening inadequacy of U.S. airports' response to #coronavirus:
"#Pakistan screened us for coronavirus. Nobody checked us when we got back to JFK" (thread)
When we flew into @JFKairport Saturday, we got *no* screening for #coronavirus and *no* directive to self-quarantine. At #Islamabad airport, we'd gotten a temperature check and had to fill out a form about our possible exposure
We were shocked at the lack of #coronavirus screening/messaging at JFK, in New York of all places — epicenter of the U.S. #covid-19 outbreak, with now over 33,000 cases and 325 deaths. Fraying posters there warning about measles seemed almost comically out of date.

inspired by @jeremyphoward:

#Masks4All is a must in #Pakistan to fight #COVID19.

cc: @ansukhera

#Czech Republic with community effort got to 100% mask usage in 10 days all thru local DIY effort
They have only 2 deaths with NO growth in daily new #COVID2019 cases.

We can learn from president of #Taiwan who led a nationwide effort to mass produce in-demand PPE Personal Protection Equipment, leading to capability to manufacturer 10mil surgical #masks per day.

They invested massively & brought down Taiwan’s cases to lowest in the world.

#Pakistan manufacturers over $24bil of textile products per month & this capacity could easily be directed towards producing PPE especially #Masks.

Graphs with light turquoise lines in these charts show flat curves because in these countries everyone wears a mask in public!

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]

#china and #pakistan just want to destroy everyone
@UN @FBI @narendramodi @ASEAN should investigate

Master plan of CHINA How to dominate the world quickly?


1. Create a virus and the antidote.
2. Spread the virus.

3. A demonstration of efficiency, building hospitals in a few days. After all, you were already prepared, with the projects, ordering the equipment, hiring the labor, the water and sewage network, the prefabricated building materials and stocked in an impres
sive volume.

4. Cause chaos in the world, starting with Europe.

5. Quickly plaster the economy of dozens of countries.

6. Stop production lines in factories in other countries.

7. Cause stock markets to fall and buy companies at a bargain price.

8. Quickly control the epidem

(1/n) Lots of discussion on a possible lockdown in Pakistan.

I have to say I agree with @ImranKhanPTI on this. The lockdown is a wealthy country solution implemented to reduce the pressure on their healthcare systems.…
(2/n) Point 1: Health capacity in Pakistan is far lower than the rest of the world. Here are some rough indicators (World Bank data):

Hospital beds per 1,000 people (2011):
UK: 2.9
World: 2.7
Pakistan: 0.6

Physicians per 1,000 people (2015):
UK: 2.78
World: 1.5
Pak: 0.98
(3/n) Point 2: Pakistan has a poverty problem, that is very different from the developed world:

Poverty headcount ratio at $1.90 a day (% of pop.):
UK: 0.1
World: 10.0
Pakistan: 3.9

Poverty headcount ratio at national poverty lines (% of pop.) (2015):
Pak: 24.3
Indonesia: 11.2

#COVIDー19 crisis response is another area where the performance of Prime Minister #ImranKhan's cabinet is inadequate & late resulting in a rapid surge in #coronavirus cases+infections. His TV address was unimpressive. @ImranKhanPTI can learn from @realDonaldTrump & @NYGovCuomo.
Unlike #USA+#Europe, #Pakistan is right next door to two epicenters of #COVIDー19 spread: #China & #Iran. China was initially late but later took impressive steps to contain the spread, incl quarantining #Pakistani citizens. Unlike Iran where Pk citizens visited in large numbrs.
What steps did PM #ImranKhan take for a #CoronaFreePakistan when it was obvious #Pakistan faced #COVIDー19 spread threat from #Iran; & when it became obvious that almost every neighbor incl #Iraq+#Turkey+#Gulf traced 1st cases to Iran & when #Tehran failed to warn neighbors?

THREAD: The #Pakistan govt. has had the view that if we lockdown the country, millions of vulnerable people will be at risk of dying from hunger etc. This perspective, in my view, rests on flawed logic.

Allow me to elaborate.
1) Business as usual means that the virus continues to spread. Which means that the privileged few who can afford to sit at home/work from home, will do so. Vulnerable segments will continue to work, which means that the virus will affect them more than elites.
2) Once this crisis hits a tipping point where 100s if not 1000s of death are likely, a lockdown will eventually be the only way out. In that scenario, the economic cost of the lockdown will have to be borne by society, particularly the vulnerable, who are more likely to be sick

Govt of #Pakistan must initiate criminal cases against these accounts spreading video & images from #Iran of #Afghan migrants as #Pakistanis under Quarantine due to #coronavirus.

They should be immediately arrested with MPO clauses & CyberCrime laws before this costs lives:

This is the original video Of Afghan migrants captured in Rafsanjan, Kerman Province of Iran, according to the video first shared on Facebook. #FakeNews #COVID:

Here is another PMLN MNA posting this video from Iran of #Afghan migrats as #Pakistanis Quarantined at #Taftan.

Strict criminal proceedings should be initiated against these opposition lawmakers who’re spreading panic among the people in these difficult #COVID19 times.

On how a partisan PPP provincial govt hijacked our national effort to fight #coronavirusinpakistan by conducting a slick media campaign based on lies,
projecting #Sindh CM as active while throwing #Balochistan govt & #Pakistan’s fed govt under the bus as incapable.

CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah is patently lying here!

Listen to what he’s saying here & then go through this thread to see how false this statement is:

“Zaireen from Iran at Taftan were to be tested for #Corona at border”

He knew it’s a lie & telling it to make himself the hero!

In order to understand how PPP Jiyalas cleverly spun this issue of return of Zaireen from Iran possibly bringing #Coronavirus with them to Pakistan, let’s look at the facts:

After 18th amendment Health is a provincial subject & strictly a responsibility of provincial govts.

1. Earstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir came into existence by The Treaty of Amritsar on 16 March 1846 between the British East India Company and Raja Gulab Singh of Jammu.
2. The entire princely state of Jammu and Kashmir became an integral part of India by signing of the Instrument of Accession by Maharaja Hari Singh in October 1947.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/
