KARACHI: All fuel stations of the state-run Pakistan State Oil (PSO) are open nationwide to cater to the fueling needs of the law-enforcement agencies, ambulances and others on the road, a statement said.

Meanwhile, the company has issued internal safety guidelines for all its employees, ensuring strict enforcement of precautionary measures, it added.

Being the nation’s own oil marketing company, PSO stands with the people of Pakistan during these challenging times as COVID-19 grips the entire country.

The company has also joined hands with different welfare organisations to provide ration bags containing food, groceries, and basic hygiene products to vulnerable families and daily wage workers in numerous cities across Pakistan, the statement said.

Hospitals have been provided with testing kits and medical equipment to help deal with the influx of COVID-19 patients in major cities. Front line healthcare workers have been equipped with protective gowns and masks as they work round-the-clock to deal with the outbreak.

Along with the establishment of numerous hand washing and sanitizing points in collaboration with the law-enforcement agencies in Karachi, PSO is also working with various ambulance service providers and extending support in terms of fuel through DigiCash cards, as they cater to the corona patients, it added.
