Doctors meet Sindh Chief Minister, suggest him not to ease off lockdown

April 7, 2020

Karachi, April 07, 2020 (PPI-OT): The owners and chief executive officers of private hospitals and leading doctors of the country Tuesday urged Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah to extend lockdown after April 14, otherwise, spread of coronavirus could not be controlled. This emerged during a meeting of Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah with the owners/CEOs and prominent doctors of the country here at CM House.


The meeting was attended by Dr. Abdul Bari, CEO Indus Hospital, Rehan Baloch, and others. The chief minister told the participants that he wanted their support, cooperation and guidance to fight coronavirus. “This is why I have bothered you here,” he said. All the doctors lauded the efforts and prompt action of the chief minister.


“If the lock down is withdrawn or eased off, the virus would spread like fire in the jungle, they said and added: “A large population of the city is slum dweller – they live in small houses with large families, travel in buses in crows,” they painted the picture and said if such kind of crowding is allowed people would get infected in buses and on the streets and would take the virus back to their home and get their family members and localities infected.


The chief minister said that he would consult with his cabinet and other stakeholders on the issue. All the CEOs and owners of the private hospitals assured the chief minister that they would provide him equipments, manpower, technical and expert support whenever the provincial government would be in need. The chief minister formed a committee headed by Health Minister Dr Azra Pechuho with Dr Asim, Dr Sadia and various others on board to work out plan, requirement and arrangements to tackle the situation.
