Pakistan and China are determined to complete the CPEC projects on time. To ensure that these projects are not affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic special preventive systems have been designed and new SOPs are being followed.
Pakistan has put in place a double quarantine system for the Chinese workers returning to Pakistan after the New Year’s vacations to ensure that other workers don’t infected. The double quarantine system worked 100 percent and as a result there was not a single case of coronavirus went to Pakistan from China and the projects didn’t stop.
The first phase of CPEC is almost near to completion as 90 percent of projects were already commissioned and the remaining were only months away from the finishing point. Both countries are trying to ensure that CPEC projects do not get affected during these difficult times.
