At the end of April, Federal Health Minister Zafar Mirza said in a press conference with the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) that Pakistan currently has about 480 health personnel who have been infected. This is a cause of great concern for the future of healthcare in the country.
He added that three doctors also have died since the COVID-19 outbreak hit the country in late February.
Doctors all across Sindh, Punjab, and Balochistan have been protesting over the lack of Personal Protective Equipment.
Yet there was a generous donation of a plane loaded with surgical masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to America as a ‘token of friendship’ and ‘solidarity’ during the global coronavirus pandemic.
United States Secretary of State Department Mike Pompeo appreciated Pakistan’s ‘goodwill’ donation and said, “This delivery is a symbol of US-Pakistan solidarity in the fight against COVID-19.”
This led to widespread outrage in Pakistan as social media users questioned how the country can donate PPE to foreign countries when our own health workers have been deprived of the same.
