Coronavirus is spreading like a wildfire. Pakistan alone has reported over 300 cases in the past 3 or 4 days and the risk of more cases is getting bigger and bigger.
The government is handling the situation as they can, but it is also time that we play our part. Many celebrities have shared their concerns about the epidemic. And those who recently returned from foreign countries are going into self-quarantine. Maya Ali too wants you to know that this is a very serious situation.
Maya Ali Shares her Personal Experience
Talking about her return from the Shaukat Khanum fundraising US tour, Maya Ali revealed that this entire time, she was stressed and anxious because she thought she might have contracted the virus herself.
“It’s been almost 5 days since I came back from my Shaukat Khanum fundraising US tour. I had chills when I was there. I got really worried so when I arrived at Lahore airport, they had a proper procedure for all the travelers to go through under the screening. Then I got checked myself and waited 2 days for results.
Alhamdulillah test turned out negative. But this whole process wasn’t that easy. Stress, anxiety, sleepless nights and most importantly that fear,” Maya Ali wrote on Instagram.
Maya also said that we must take the situation seriously because all we can do right now is ‘self care and follow the proper measures’.

It’s been almost 5 days since I came back from my shaukat khanum fund raising US tour. I had chills when I was there. I got really worried so when I arrived at Lahore airport, they had a proper procedure for all the travellers to go through under the screening. Then I got checked myself and waited 2 days for results. Alhamdulillah test turned out negative. But this whole process wasn’t that easy. Stress, anxiety, sleepless nights and most importantly that fear… I know it’s a crucial time, not only for Pakistan but actually for the whole humanity. There is no vaccine that has yet been dicovered for this virus, all we can do is self care and follow proper measures. We must take it seriously. I am more worried about those people who survive on daily wages, now they don’t have any source to feed themselves and their families. They can’t even get checked themselves because of affordability. I’ll request the government of Pakistan to think about them and try to arrange a team who can reach them and get them checked free of cost. This is not a time to panic and this time too shall pass by Insha ALLAH. For now social distancing is the only way for our safer future. We won’t hug for some time so we can meet more happily later… Have faith in ALLAH and do take every possible precaution for yourself, for your family and for the entire humanity… “Beshak ALLAH is the greatest” #washyourhands #wearmask #socialdistancing
She expressed her concerns for the underprivileged segments as well as they are more vulnerable to the disease. She said that she would really appreciate it if the government could arrange a team to get them checked free of cost.
At the end of her post, she requested her followers to maintain a safe distance and follow the precautionary measures that are crucial for combating this viral outbreak.
