Ensure social distancing, wear face masks, and wash your hands. You have shown what a disciplined nation can do,” the president further observed and advised the nation to keep following the precautionary measures.

According to the graph, on Friday, India had 50,000 new cases & Pakistan had only 1,487. new cases per/mln of population India had 36 per million & Pakistan had 6.79 per million.
