  1. … for now!

    That’s the catch. You don’t know how bad you will get until it’s too late.

  2. Imran Khan doesn’t want a lockdown because short of imposing Martial Law, and the Army on the streets, he has little chance of getting people to obey.

    Given the history of Martial Law being imposed on Pakistan for half of its life since independence, there is reluctance by any political party to support it.

    Instead the government is trying to encourage voluntary isolation, schools and colleges have been shut, shopping malls ordered shut, people encouraged to pray at home instead of Mosques, a ban on parades and processions etc.

  3. Note to those not familiar with Pakistani politics, Imran Khan turns out to be Prime Minister of Pakistan, and seems to be quite an idiot.

  4. Uhh the situation is literally the exact same. How bad isn’t important. You already have it.

  5. It’s not like this virus takes advantage of human fallibility and complacency…
