In order to deal with rising Coronavirus cases the Sindh government will turn the Karachi Expo Center into a 10,000-bed hospital. This was determined at a federal task force meeting.
During the meeting, Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah suggested making a makeshift hospital with one hall of the Expo Centre which will be extended as needed.
CM Sindh also directed the authorities to distribute two million grocery bags among needy families through leading business people in the province, and welfare organizations. He hoped that the effort will ease the worries of daily wagers who are concerned about food availability during the lockdown.
The distribution of groceries will be done phase-wise. In the first phase, one month’s grocery items will be distributed among needy people. Each bag will consist of flour, rice, three kinds of pulses, ghee, sugar, tea bags, dry milk, and spices.
