My name is Syeda Khushbakhat, I’m a Pakistani student living in Xi’an, Shaanxi China and I am writing this post with immense grief. I want to clarify somethings on a serious note.
First of all, not every province is affected in China and the one which is, Hubei, Wuhan is completely sealed. Everybody is staying at home, the Govt is trying to figure out the total number of affected people which is going to take 10-14 days, until then, there’s a complete lockdown in every city here. People are taking precautions seriously because of past incidents back in 2003. The supermarkets are open for groceries, although they aren’t enough and highly expensive it’s okay, we’ll get through it.
We hardly come out of our rooms and there are a lot of other things we’re dealing with but that’s not my point.
See we are missing our families more than anything in the whole world but even if we get a chance to come back, we will prefer to stay, to sacrifice our wishes for Pakistan because we don’t want the virus to hit our beloved homeland. I think it’s the best a student can do.
Now my point is, suddenly every Pakistani has become so SELFISH that they are like demanding from the Govt to lock us down here in China, please these people will bring virus bla,bla,bla
All we needed was emotional support from OUR PEOPLE but I think we were wrong !!!
Hear me out fellows, Chinese are treating us like their own people, they are taking really good care of us so we’re kind of more than fine here if we talk about medical care but the response of our people pissed us off.
If you feel offended by my post, try to put your self in my shoes. Least you can do is to pray for us and the affected ones.
