    New Delhi (Sputnik): Pakistan has a total of 43,966 confirmed coronavirus cases with the death toll reaching 927. The government, however, has relaxed restrictions, allowing businesses to reopen, and letting domestic flight operations and public transport services restart.

    Pakistan government website, dedicated to Covid-19, is being derided by netizens of the country for the display of "poor English" skills on a public portal. 

    While listing out the causes of Coronavirus disease, the government website mentioned “hot fever” as a coronavirus symptom - fever cannot be categorized as hot and cold - and failing to clearly convey COVID-19 symptoms with lucidity.

    The website wanted to inform the people about the symptoms of coronavirus, mentioned by WHO as high fever, sore throat and shortness of breath among others.

    Netizens not only mocked the Prime Minister Imran Khan-led government with sarcastic Tweets but also raised concerns over the efficacy of the professionals and experts in the country.

     

    On 18 May, Twitter went down across Pakistan for unspecified reasons. Several people, however, accessed the site through a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and accused the government of disrupting the social media platform.
