As earlier, a British Pakistani orthopedic surgeon developed a Corona Helpline in Pakistan free of charge in order to restrict the spread of coronavirus.
Dr Suhail Chughtai told in an interview that he designed “telemedicine-based corona helpline” to give opportunity to people to take free medical advice on corona-like symptoms to minimise the need to go out where they can either catch a virus or spread it.
Chinese health experts also hailed steps taken by the Punjab government to curb the spread of the virus in the province.
