The protection of our health workers, from doctors and nurses to other paramedic staff, is the government’s foremost priority, P M Imran Khan has assured.
While addressing health workers at the inauguration of a project to upgrade Rawalpindi’s Cantonment General Hospital on Wednesday, the premier lauded health workers for “working in the front line” in the nation’s fight against the novel COVID-19.
He said the government will receive and process data on the spread and impact of the coronavirus in Pakistan within a week. “In the meantime, we’re constantly thinking of incentives and other measures for doctors and other hospital staff,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said.
“Since January 15 when we first got to know about the pandemic in China, we have been working to facilitate and equip our doctors, he said. Unfortunately, things deteriorated as a shortage of equipment ensued across the globe.
The prime minister Imran khan remarked that in these hard times, Pakistan is “lucky” as China has give its “first preference” to it and has been sending health equipment into the country.
