Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday defended his decision to ease Covid-19 lockd... 3

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday defended his decision to ease Covid-19 lockdown restrictions in the country, saying that Pakistan's circumstances were vastly different to those of Wuhan (in China) and Europe.

"Everyone panicked and said 'the disease is spreading' after observing the events in Europe and Wuhan. Their circumstances were much different than ours," he said.

He said that lockdowns have consequences. He added that he believed that governments should not impose strict lockdowns without thinking about the welfare of the daily wage workers and the poor.

"I was criticised [for arguing against strict lockdowns] because people were expecting me to impose the kind of lockdown that Narendra Modi had imposed in India," he said, adding that he was "grateful" for the fact that he resisted pressure and refused to impose a strict lockdown.

"Today, no one can even imagine the kind of poverty that has been unleashed in India," the prime minister said.
