Peshawar hospitals fail to reopen OPDs despite govt order

The Out-Patient Departments (OPDs) of all major hospitals in Peshawar remained closed despite orders by the Supreme Court. According to residents, all entry spots leading to the OPD at Lady Reading Hospital were blocked with tents. The management of the hospital said that they decided to keep the OPDs closed as they had multiple coronavirus patients.

The Supreme Court and KP government had passed an order four days ago for all OPDs to reopen. The departments were closed after the number of coronavirus cases in the country spiked.
