No shortage of beds, ventilators for COVID-19 patients: Zafar Mirza

There is no shortage of beds, ventilators and medical facilities for COVID-19 patients, said the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Health Dr Zafar Mirza. He said only 28% of available ventilators are being used for patients with COVID-19, according to Radio Pakistan. The minister added that around 723 patients were in critical condition while 201 of them were on ventilators.

A Resource Management System that collects and updates data on COVID-19 patients in real-time has been developed in Pakistan, the PM’s aide announced. The system will be linked to hospitals across the country so that they can give live updates of their data and available medical resources.
