July 1, 2020

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that the Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) established at University Road, opposite the NED University, would start operation from next Friday.

He issued these directives to Health Minister Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho and VC Dow University during his visit to the hospital on Wednesday morning. The chief minister was accompanied by Minister Health Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho.

Shah visited the 50-beded double story hospital which has 6-beded ICU and a High Dependency Unit. He visited each and every ward and personally witnessed operation of radiology department, ventilators and oxygen system and IT unit. It may be noted that it is a Dow University Dental Hospital which has been converted into Infectious Disease Hospital by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali by injecting necessary funding and staff.

The chief minister directed health department to post well-trained healthcare staff in the hospital and make it functional from Friday. “This hospital will be of great help to treat COVID-19 patients, even if any of them need only oxygen support or ventilators,” he said and added that the x-ray unit/radiology department facility would also help to save the lives of serious patients by diagnosing their chest complication. “This is a best facility that offers complete health care to the COVID-19 patients,” he said.

CM said that within next 15 to 20 days, a 200-beded hospital for COVID-9 patients would start functioning at NIPA Chowrangi, Karachi. “Alhamdulillah, we have managed to establish separate health care facilities for the corona patients in Karachi and we be expanding it in every divisional headquarter,” he said.
