Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has hoped that the people of Pakistan would emerge stronger.

The UAE has sent medical supplies to Pakistan to help the country tackle the Covid-19 coronavirus.

As of April 1, the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the country stood at 2,039, said
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on National Health Services, Dr Zafar Mirza.

He said 24 more patients had recovered during last 24 hours, bringing total number to 82.

On Thursday, aid from China was also flown in to the country by a special Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane. The goods included Nucleic Acid Detection Kits, IgG/IgM Rapid Test Devices, Real-time Fluorescent Kits, scanners, KN95 masks, gloves, goggles, protective clothing, surgical masks and many other items.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has described the outbreak as an "extraordinary situation", and hoped that the people of Pakistan, by fighting and winning the war against coronavirus with unity, faith, discipline and sagacity, would emerge as a great and stronger nation.

"Nothing is impossible. Every difficulty is considered as a test for us. Allah Almighty has repeatedly said in the Holy Quran that He continues to test our faith. And I hope this nation will emerge as a great and stronger nation from this test," he said earlier this week.
