karachi: A delegation of representatives of overseas doctors, hailing from the Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS), met with Sindh Governor Imran Ismail on Sunday and presented 150 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits for doctors and paramedics engaged in looking after the COVID-19 patients.

Umeed Ali Junejo, advisor to the governor, was also present during the meeting held at the Governor House. Dr Tariq Khan and his overseas colleagues have contributed for local manufacturing of these suits and till now 1,000 such suits have been handed over to the Sindh government, the JPMC, the DUHS, the SIUT and Al-Mustafa Trust due to their generous donations.

The governor lauded the commitment and resolve of Dr Tariq Khan and his team for coming up with the idea of locally manufacturing PPE suits. “The entire nation stands fully united in the war against corona virus,” he observed.

He said the local manufacturing of PPE suits was commendable as it would fulfil the ever-increasing demand of them. The governor said doctors, paramedics and volunteers were the frontline soldiers in our quest to curb and control the spread of coronavirus. “Every possible step is being taken to ensure their safety, including the provision of PPE for them,” he added.

The head of the delegation and additional director at the Ojha Campus of DUHS, Kanwar Muhammad Ali Khan, informed the governor that similar PPE suits would soon be handed over to the Bolan Medical College Hospital Quetta, the Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar and the Hayatabad Medical Centre Peshawar.
