As follow up of National Coordination Committee Meeting on 20 March chaired by PM Imran Khan and COAS’s meeting with PM, COAS directs for stepping up Army’s assistance to civil administration for containment of COVID-19.
“Protecting oneself is foundation for community / nation’s collective protection against pandemic. Every precautionary measure counts. Let’s be a responsible citizen at individual level first and in turn assist authorities for safety & protection at collective level. Every Pakistani must follow guidelines given by the government and health departments to make ongoing national effort a success. Nothing can defeat a responsible and determined nation, as displayed by China. Pakistan Army being part of national effort shall serve and protect the nation as a sacred duty. We shall succeed by being self disciplined, cooperating, reinforcing each other and thereby synergising various efforts, IA”, COAS.
