Video: '2 slaps' for those flouting Covid rules, says Wasim Akram
'Why are you so stubborn', asks legendary cricketer
Pakistan’s former cricket team captain Wasim Akram has urged authorities in the South Asian country to give “two slaps” to people who don’t follow Covid-19 safety and preventive measures.
The legendary cricketer said in a video message shared on his Instagram account that the country’s Punjab province is experiencing the worst wave of Covid-19.
It is imperative that residents follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs) related to Covid-19, he said.
“I am talking to you people after a long time. I hope you all will be good, not just in Pakistan but across the globe. I read that in Punjab, especially Lahore, Islamabad and Rawalpindi, Covid-19 is spreading fast. I request you all to follow Covid SOPs. Why are you so stubborn? There is a Plan B: Give two slaps to those who don’t follow SOPs."
Pakistan is in the grip of a third wave of Covid-19 and reported 4,468 cases on Saturday.
