Shaniera Akram, spouse of cricket legend Waseem Akram, has showed strong concerns over the increasing number of coronavirus cases and has once again appealed to people to follow SOPs and stay indoors to stay safe.
Shaniera said in a tweet, “I’ve been living in Pakistan for more than 8 years. I have seen a lot. But nothing has frightened me more than the way, we as a country, have handled this pandemic.”
“I fear we are past the stage of ‘if we contract COVID’ Every household must now prepare for ‘when’. #COVIDPakistan.”
She further said, “To all those people who have done the right thing, thank you, you have helped slow down the spread but unfortunately we were just not strong enough, now we must brace ourselves for inevitable. Please stay safe, follow SOPs and keep your doors closed!”
