LAHORE:The Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q) leadership has activated district presidents and workers throughout the province in view of the coronavirus situation.

Punjab Assembly Speaker Ch Pervaiz Elahi contacted party presidents and prominent leaders by telephone. He said, “I am grateful to party leaders and workers who are taking part in the noble work.” He directed that district organisations along with the wings should participate in relief work in an organised manner for the elimination of the virus. He said that the army, doctors, nurses, police and other administrative institutions were rendering best services and the entire nation salutes the spirit of medical staff, doctors and paramedical staff. He said the Pak Army had always played a great role in every difficult time. “The Pak Army is always seen on the front line and the government, institutions and the nation will defeat the virus,” he added.

‘Patients should be allowed self-isolation at home’: Pakistan Muslim League (PML) MNA Moonis Elahi has emphasised on the Punjab government the coronavirus positive people should also be allowed self-isolation in their homes.

In a tweet, he said the government should not shift virus positive people to hospitals forcibly, rather those who want should be allowed treatment in their homes in complete isolation. However, people with serious symptoms should immediately be shifted to hospitals, he added.

He said because of fear of hospitals people were fearful of getting themselves tested whereas there were also not enough beds in our hospitals.
