The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) has called for a strict enforcement of the lockdown to prevent congregations of all kinds to contain the spread of COVID-19. Addressing a press conference on Monday, representatives of the Pakistan Medical Association including President Dr Abdul Wahid Abbasi, Dr Muhammad Usaman Mako, Dr Zulifqar Soomro. Dr Iftikhar Shah, called upon the government to involve (in its taskforce) health experts from public sector medical universities/hospitals and organisations of doctors actively fighting the deadly virus. We kept quiet and were avoiding giving our opinion as the government was taking steps to save the country from deadly effects of corona virus, but now the cases are in thousands which is alarming, they said. Highlighting the gaps in the government strategy on COVID-19 and sharing suggestions, they said the government must reflect why the numbers of coronavirus cases were growing despite the lockdown.
