KARACHI: Spokesperson for Sindh government and Advisor for Law, Environment & Coastal Development Barrister Murtaza Wahab on Tuesday said that the spread of coronavirus was being controlled with the cooperation of the people of Sindh.

This was possible due to better policy of Sindh government, he expressed these views while addressing a press conference at Sindh Assembly Auditorium. He said that many people were trying to take credit for this, but the reality is in front of everyone.

The Sindh government’s strategy to curb the spread of corona has been successful. Presenting the statistics of people infected with the coronavirus, he said that in Sindh till July 21, the number of cases of coronavirus was one hundred and thirteen thousand while the number in other provinces was very low.

He said that the spokespersons for the federal government misrepresented that due to wrong policies of the Sindh government, the number of corona patients had increased. He said that 0.45 million tests had been done in Sindh while Punjab which had many times more population than Sindh had undergone about 0.4 million virus tests.

In Sindh, double tests were conducted from Punjab. Sindh also has a high recovery rate among patients infected with the coronavirus. Eighty-two percent of patients have recovered in Sindh, while the number is much lower in Punjab and other provinces.

He said that the death rate of patients from corona was also lower than all other provinces in Sindh. Blaming won’t do anything. Statistics show that the Sindh government’s strategy regarding corona has been successful.

The spokesperson while giving all the details of the patients infected with the corona virus said that the purpose of disclosing the statistics was to ensure positive cooperation of the people with the government. He said that the impression that Corona has gone is wrong and new patients of corona are still emerging.

He appealed to the people that they should not lose sight of the precautionary measures. If precaution is not taken, then cases may increase. The health department is conducting free corona test for citizens. If any person has any symptom, they must get tested. The Sindh government is going to enact more legislation regarding corona. Later, the Sindh government spokesperson, while highlighting the situation in the country after corona, said that the virus of PTI corruption was spreading rapidly in the country.

“No school will be opened in Sindh from August 15. We will not compromise on children’s health nor will we allow the private school administration to do so,” he told reporters. He said that no matter how much testing is being done in Sindh, the rate of positive patients is decreasing. In the meantime, we have further improved our capacity and isolation centers. He further said that PPP believes in ideology and philosophy and not individuals. On this occasion, along with Sindh government Spokesperson Barrister Murtaza Wahab, PPP Sindh Information Secretary Senator Aajiz Dhamra, MPA Zulfiqar Shah and Fida Hussain Dhakan were also present
