Shoaib Akhtar slams ‘shameful’ hoarders of face masks, as corona strike Pakistan

Former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar expressed frustration over people involved in price hike of surgical masks in the country, after two corona virus patients have been reported in Pakistan.

The speedster took to Twitter and shared a post wherein he says, “All the people who are involved in the price hike of face masks for protection from Corona Virus should be shameful of this act. This is the time to show some substance as a nation. Help each other. Facilitate each other.”


According to reports, surgical masks have either disappeared from medical stores in the city or are being sold at exorbitant prices across the metropolis.

A box of ordinary surgical masks which would have ordinarily cost somewhere between Rs 300 to 400 is now being sold for more than Rs2,000.
