The Pakistan government has also closed its borders with Iran and Afghanistan since Iran has emerged as the new hotspot for the virus with over 1500 people now infected and 66 reported deaths.
Coronavirus is so far responsible for over 3100 deaths and over 83000 registered cases with majority of them in China where the virus emerged in their Hubei province.
So far Pakistan government seems to be taking all precautions against this novel coronavirus including setting up new thermal scanners at airports as reported by Dr Zafar Mirza through his tweet saying:
New and upgraded thermo scanners are now installed in major airports around Pakistan. This will further improve the efficiency of our port of entries and first line of defense against coronavirus,
