From Abid Usman

LAHORE: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif Monday said tests at large scale and quarantine centers, separate from hospitals, are solution to the coronavirus epidemic.
Shehbaz Sharif said notice should be taken of rising cases in Punjab and God forbid a big disaster will occur if immediate action is not taken. The government is risking the lives of people by not conducting tests, he remarked. “There is lack of kits, medicines and other relevant medical facilities at all district and tehsil hospitals. Imran Niazi’s [Prime Minister Imran Khan] attitude is synonymous with surrendering before the pandemic.
“Protective gear for doctors, nurses and other medical staff should be ensured. Patients at hospitals should immediately be separated from the coronavirus victims. “Government schools, colleges, hotels, marriage halls and mosques should be turned into quarantine centers.”
Meanwhile, Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid has said that every possible step is being taken to control the coronavirus pandemic, however it is impossible to test everyone for the coronavirus. Dr Yasmin Rashid said this while talking during a private Tv news programme .
