  • indeed it was a great decision. Many events have been cancelled or postponed. Prevention is a lot better than cure.

    • You fool this will cause huge economic loss to Pakistan this corona drama started by some coward enemy to further sink our economy.

      • This “drama” has killed about 5000 people worldwide. Or do you think they’re pretending? If you really think this is a drama then go ahead and infect yourself and your loved ones.

      • Are you out of your senses…Corona is a threat …living threat..you infect your self with this..then you will see its a drama or threat

  • I think it must be left to people’s choice whether to come to stadiums or not those who come to stadium must go through screening and precautionary dose and those who are reluctant to come must be refunded , this way i think PCB can prevent the most probable and expected chaos and can also minimize the economic losses..!

    • When people get infected they’re not the only ones who suffer. Infected people can spread the disease to unwilling people. So this choice scenario doesn’t hold weight. It’s your choice if you want to get infected but after that you’ll spread it to people who didn’t make that choice. With a fast spreading incurable disease prevention is the last defence.

    • Screening is useless as it relies on symptoms and a person infected with Coronavirus can have no symptoms for up to 14 days and during those 14 days he can still infect others. There’s no such thing as a precautionary dose against an incurable disease. Until there’s a vaccine, we only have prevention.
