If Pakistan Won’t Evacuate Its Citizens From Wuhan, India Should

India has efficiently and swiftly evacuated hundreds of its nationals from China due to the coronavirus outbreak that has already killed over 1,100 people there. Two special Air India flights evacuated 640 Indians and seven Maldivian nationals stranded in Wuhan — the epicenter of the coronavirus, now under a strict quarantine.
In contrast, the Pakistani government, in the words of Zafar Mirza, special assistant to the prime minister, has refused to evacuate its students “in the larger interest of the country, the region and the world.” Pakistan’s ambassador to China, Naghmana Hashmi, emphasized that China has better medical facilities to handle patients than Pakistan, which does not meet the required standards to treat such cases.
