A senior doctor, Dr Feroz, has died of Covid-19 after being under treatment, on Sunday.
Dr Feroz was head of the anesthesia department at DOW Hospital.
After Dr Feroz’s death the number of doctor casualties due to covid-19 have reached to 209 in Pakistan.
The Pakistan Medical Association has urged doctors to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Dr Qaiser Sajjad of PMA, “It’s a sad day. We appeal to all healthcare providers to strictly follow all Covid-19 related standard operating procedures (SOPs) while examining their patients. Nobody should think that getting a vaccine jab minimises the need to follow SOPs,”.
Earlier in May, the Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) has demanded government to provide Shuhuda compensation package to the families of those doctors who died due to covid-19.
