Srinagar, Mar 20: All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC M) expressed serious concern over the alarming situation arising out of coronavirus across the world . It appealed to the people of Jammu and Kashmir to strictly follow the preventive measures and guidelines as suggested by medical experts and concerned agencies, so that precious human lives are saved and the deadly disease is prevented from spreading further.
