The biggest challenge for most of us in today’s world is how to protect ourselves and our families from the Corona epidemic and to secure our livelihoods. On the other hand, policymakers, think tanks, and authorities are looking for policies that will help control the epidemic and prevent its negative effects on the economy from escalating.
At present, the number of Corona victims worldwide is about five million. More than 550,000 lives have been lost due to this epidemic. Another grim reality of this epidemic is that in this already struggling world, it is estimated that around 500 million people will lose their jobs by the end of this year. This situation demands that governments forget their differences to prevent the epidemic and increase unemployment. Before it is too late, a unanimous response from the United Nations is needed.
This war against COVID-19 will be won sooner or later, but after this victory, a long list of challenges awaits the world. It will not be possible for a single nation to meet these new challenges alone. So everyone has to prepare for the post-Corona world right now. We must be ready now to embrace the new world.
In all, China is the only country in the world where the circle of life has returned to normal. From the beginning, China’s top leader Xi Jinping described the prevention and control of the epidemic as a “people’s war.” He stressed that the lives and health of the people should be the first priority and that the people must be relied upon to win this war. In the face of this sudden epidemic, all the people working in the field, from cleaners, couriers to medical staff, and others, worked hard and quietly, creating a powerful force to control the epidemic. In talks with foreign leaders, the Chinese president stressed that it is the Chinese people who have given us the strength and confidence to overcome this epidemic, the people are the heroes.
There is no spectator in the fight against the epidemic. The 1.4 billion Chinese are struggling to fight the epidemic in their own right, and only after understanding the struggles of every ordinary Chinese, the international community can have a clear idea of how China won this epidemic war. Bruce Elward, a senior adviser to the World Health Organization’s director-general, said with emotion that “volunteers have served to protect not only China but the world from the virus.”
In today’s world, we have supercomputers, big data, artificial intelligence, and statistical analysis software but we are so helpless that we are unable to answer this question, despite all our claims of power and practical evidence, that how will the post-corona world look like? This is because the world to come will no longer be determined by our desires, but by the challenges posed by the “virus.”
One thing is for sure, the poorest and lowest income groups will suffer the most in this whole situation. Therefore, the most powerful people in the world have to worry about them the most. These are the people who have brought the world to this powerful place today with their blood and sweat. It was these people who worked hard to develop the industrialized system in which we are living now. This nightmare will soon be over if we are successful to save them together.
The recent epidemic has opened the floodgates of hollow claims around the world. This epidemic has exposed the injustices, weaknesses, and shortcomings in our system. In today’s world, the wealth of the rich may be reduced to zero, but the life of the poor is reduced to zero.
God forbid what if the epidemic of hunger comes to the world after Corona. At the moment, Corona has brought the United States and Africa at the same level. Today, the richest region in the world is just as helpless as the poorest. Today, a worker along with its Prime Minister is a victim of this virus. We must take the lesson from this virus in a positive way and eradicate the roots of inequality from the world, because if we do not save the weak now, who will we rule?
The World Needs to Learn From Pakistan’s Efforts to Deal with Corona, President UN General Assembly
UN General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir has said that the world needs to learn from Pakistan’s efforts to deal with Corona. During a press conference with UN General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the meeting with Volkan Bozkir was pleasant. On this occasion, we briefed him on measures to deal with Corona, Pakistan’s role in bringing peace to Afghanistan, and human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir.
Volkan Bozkir said that he is happy to come to Pakistan, Pakistan hosted him in the best possible way. Pakistan is an important member of the UN General Assembly and Pakistan’s role in bringing peace to the region is commendable.
He discussed important issues with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and also met Prime Minister Imran Khan today. Prime Minister Imran Khan briefed about the situation in Occupied Kashmir and he was impressed by the views of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
“Tackling the coronavirus is a challenge for countries around the world. Pakistan has fought this global epidemic in the best possible way. The world needs to learn from Pakistan’s efforts to deal with corona,” Bozkir said.
Imran Khan’s Victory over Profiteers – Billions of Rupees are Lost by the Mafia
Journalist Imran Riaz said that there are some people in Pakistan who are forced to live below the poverty line but there are also some people who belong to wealthy families but they are the ones who are abusing Prime Minister Imran Khan from a long time. They are using abusive language for Prime Minister Imran Khan only because they are used to make money in Pakistan through illegal means, and for these people, Prime Minister Imran Khan has proven to be unlucky.
“I was very happy to see when a man who is causing damage to Pakistan gets ruined,” he said. In the last few days, many people have been ruined who wanted to earn profit through illegal means. For example, N95 mask which is said to be a very good mask against COVID-19, was suddenly perished from the market by profiteers in Pakistan and the same mask was sold in black to make huge profits, even though its price had reached Rs 2,000, but now the same mask is available in the market for only Rs 150.
He said that as the cases of Coronavirus increased in Pakistan, the price of hand sanitizers increased and it was sold in the black market for high prices. Profiteering mafia stockpiles massive hand sanitizers to make a profit in the future, but due to the decrease in the Corona cases, there are no buyers to buy it now. The profiteering mafia is facing severe losses at the moment.
“I am very happy with the news that contrary to the estimates of international organizations, the spread of the coronavirus in Pakistan has stopped, which is a piece of bad news for illegal profiteers because they purchased Corona related goods worth billions. The medicines are now available in the market at low rates, thanks to some necessary steps taken by the government. The availability of medicines in the market is good news for the poor but devastating news for the profiteers,” he said.
