A student belonging to Pakistan and studying at a university based in China has been subject to being quarantined ever since his return from the virus-stricken country on Saturday. The student has shown suspected symptoms of novel coronavirus.

He continued on by saying that his brother had cleared all the medical screening which was carried out at the Jinnah International Airport located in Karachi, however, once he reached the village, he stated to experience fever, flu, cough and fatigue.

The student is being kept at the Civil Hospital located in Khairpur, and it has been revealed by his brother that he is facing neglect as the medics present at the hospital are not ready to perform any tests on him. In fact, Irshad Ali even posted a video online which clearly showed his brother being neglected despite the fact that he was suffering health-wise – apparent by his bleeding nose.

A social activist present in Rahujo’s village has claimed that his presence within the area has caused great panic within the people living in it. The activist, Saeed Sangri, said : “There is panic in the village. It is a remote area and the villagers do not even know much about the precautionary measures for coronavirus.”
