He said there is no difference between the kids of Tharparkar and Larkana adding every health facility in Thar has got an ambulance to shift the relevant patient/s free of cost to any suitable hospital even to Hyderabad. He said latest medical equipment and instruments have been supplied to Thar hospitals whereas we have machinery of 2003 model. He said modern ventilators and incubators have been supplied to Thar Hospitals but our six ventilators procured in 2003 are still dysfunctional and lying idle because there are no trained operators to run them. Each unit should have latest digital X-Ray machine but outdated machine is working which need to be replaced forthwith.
