After the mandatory period, a certificate will be issued to those declared free of the virus to assure the immigration officials that they are free from the disease.

“We are confident that if we are successful in implementing this plan — and there is no reason to believe that we won’t [be able to implement it] — we will be able to keep Pakistanis safe from this virus, said Mirza.

He added that an awareness campaign will be initiated on electronic media to educate people about the origin, symptoms, and ways of transfer of the deadly virus.
