The Sindh Chief Minister, Syed Murad Ali Shah, confirmed on April 6 that the number of infected people had gone upto 932 out of which 253 have recovered.
According to him, 662 patients were under treatment in public and private hospitals, while 342 were isolation at their homes.
In addition to existing corona treatment and isolation facilties, he said, the government was in the process of establishing one isolation centre in every district, while relevant quarters have also been asked to ensure that private health establishments allocate 10 per cent of their bed for corona patients.
In a message, he informed that SOPs were underway for leading post lockdown lifestyle. “We will handover SOPs, which are under preparation, for each and every sector, including mosques, shopkeepers and traders, industries, educational institutions and others for post lockdown period,” he stated.
He further said that every individual will have to reshape his and her domestic, business and social life in the post lockdown period as life will not be same as it was before the coronavirus spread in the country.
On this occasion, the Chief Minister also urged the philanthropists to maintain social distance from recipients, while distributing rations among them. “If the social distancing is not maintained, there are chances of spread of the diseases, which may be termed as crime”, he warned.
