With the Coronavirus pandemic, plenty of people are ready to jump on board the sharing precautions bandwagon. Amid this, it’s refreshing to see Pakistani celebs that are taking practical steps to help others.
There are a handful of celebs that are helping provide rations to the public amid all the panic buying and buyouts. This was followed by a lockdown, now while this won’t affect those stocked up on supplies, however, this will affect the underprivileged.
Wage workers buy rations in phases and all the hoarding and panic buyouts prevented many from gathering minimal supplies.
Cessation of their wages is another nightmare amid the Coronavirus lockdown as they cannot work. Despite government efforts to provide relief, there will be a massive fallout.
