Punjab health department suggests complete lockdown
The district administration and Punjab Health Department have mulled over imposing a complete lock down in Punjab as the covid-19 positivity rate have been reached to 19%.
According to the Punjab Health Minister, Yasmin Rashid, the situation in Lahore would get worse if precautionary measures are not taken.
She further revealed that, there are zero ventilators at the Jinnah Hospital, Services Hospital, Gangaram Hospital, Kot Khawaja Saeed Teaching Hospital and One Gate Hospital.
70% of the oxygen beds at hospitals across Lahore have been occupied due to the rising covid-19 cases.
However, the final decision of imposing complete lockdown in Punjab would be taken by the Punjab Government.
