Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that he has issued orders to help Pakistani students stuck in Wuhan after the outbreak of the 2019 Covid-19 coronavirus.

"I have issued instructions to our Foreign Office and Overseas Ministry to do everything possible for our students who are stuck in Wuhan city," the premier said on his Twitter handle.

Earlier this month, Pakistani President Dr Arif Alvi took to social media to share a saying of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as Pakistan got flak for not evacuating its citizens from China.

To allay concerns in the Muslim-majority country, President Dr Alvi tweeted a saying/tradition (Hadith) of the Prophet (PBUH) that addresses disease outbreaks and how Muslims should deal with it.

The Hadith says: "If you hear of an outbreak of plague in a land, do not enter it, but if the plague breaks out in a place while you are in it, do not leave that place" (Sahih Bukhari and Muslim)
