ISLAMABAD: Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives, Asad Umar on Friday stressed the need for devising a mechanism of providing latest information about availability of beds and ventilators in the hospitals to facilitate COVID-19 patients.
“Such information would facilitate the infected people to get admission in hospitals as per their own preference,” he said while chairing a meeting at the National Command and Control Centre.
Asad Umar said that a special meeting of National Coordination Committee (NCC) on Coronavirus will be held on Monday (June 1) to finalise the strategy regarding coronavirus for the month of June.
The meeting was apprised that sufficient beds and ventilators are available in hospitals across the country for accommodating COVID-19 patients and most of the infected people prefer isolation at homes.
The forum also reviewed the progress on the implementation status of COVID-19 guidelines.
