LAHORE : Punjab Governor Chaudhary Muhammad Sarwar inaugurated Corona Rescue Helpline 1190 at Rescue Headquarters to provide awareness and assistance to suspected coronavirus victims in Punjab, to reduce panic and to provide safe transportation to corona patients to the designated health facility by rescue teams.

He hoped that the helpline would decrease the burden on hospitals by provision of timely guidance while rescuers would be able to safely respond to the coronavirus emergencies.
