HYDERABAD: Pakistan is on the verge of facing another ban, albeit not due to terrorism but due to its failure to bring improvement in the global health indicators. It is due to the negligence of the public health sector that some other countries are considering imposing travel restrictions on Pakistani nationals. If the current situation prevails for the next few years Pakistanis might no longer be able to travel freely across the world. The federal government’s health department must take the necessary steps and implement them together with the provincial government to ensure that another ban is not placed on a people who already have to undergo very strict checks on arrival at airports in several countries.
