PM Imran Khan’s makes an appeal to the nation
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday once more appealed to the nation to wear masks amid an increasingly worrying coronavirus situation in Pakistan.
"An average of 40% of the country's hospital beds are occupied with coronavirus patients," he said, appealing to the nation to strictly abide by wearing a mask, as it is the easiest precaution and our first line of defense against the contagious disease.
The prime minister warned that a time will come when the hospital beds will no longer be vacant and there will be an added pressure on hospital workers, besides a more precarious situation for the elderly or people with secondary health concerns.
"Right now, following the rally in Multan, 64% beds reserved for coronavirus patients lie occupied," he added.
