As the number of patients affected by coronavirus is increasing, Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah ordered to set-up an isolation center at the PAF Museum located on Shahra-e-Faisal consisting of 1000 beds.
All the COVID-19 patients will be given proper treatment and the isolation center is said to be operated by the Sindh Health officials.
Also, Murad Ali Shah has ordered to buy all the important equipment needed in the quarantine center.
This step of setting up another quarantine center is a measure to prevent the outbreak of the deadly virus. This Saturday, the tally of the confirmed COVID-19 cases raised up to 7000 in Sindh which means it surpassed the count of Punjab.
The CM also asked for Community surveillance in order to measure the impact and spread of the virus. CM Shah in a video statement told the tally of the province which has increased to 7,102 as 427 more cases were reported on Friday. So he asked the relevant authorities to keep checking the community.
The province already has an isolation center consisting of 1200 beds, which was set-up last month jointly by the Federal Government and Sindh Government in collaboration with the Pakistan army at the Expo center.
The staff working at the quarantine center is provided with proper boarding and dining facilities. They are required to stay in the quarantine areas as a preventive measure for fifteen days. The entire staff goes through regular medical check-ups and their cabins are also disinfected regularly.
There are thousands of volunteers who had registered themselves in order to provide assistance for running the isolation center.
