The Punjab government has asked the Center for Rs 30 billion to cope with the emergency caused by the spread of the coronavirus in the province.
In this sense, the provincial government sent a summary containing its request to the federal government and requested assistance in three sectors. These include the health and education sectors, in addition to the special economic package.
Funds will be allocated to provide the necessary equipment to the Health Department, and will also be used to launch a campaign to sensitize people about the coronavirus. In addition, the funds will also be used monthly to help the poor.
