Video message of Chairman Young Consultant Association Islam Dr. Asfandyar
More than 700 healthcare workers and doctors across the country have been affected so far.
Most of them are those who are on duty outside the isolation ward.
Most of them are people who were not provided safety equipment.
The government has been appealing for time to take steps to protect its front line soldiers.
Government should immediately provide safety equipment to doctors and paramedical staff.
Provide N95 masks, face sheets, gloves and kits to doctors and paramedical staff.
Demands PM Imran Khan to reconsider decision to ease lockdown.
Because the most important thing is to open OPDs.
Opening one-time OPDs at this time will increase the rush and cases are likely to increase.
Second, a mechanism should be put in place to ensure the supply of safety equipment to doctors and paramedical staff across the country.
