Punjab parks to be converted into field hospitals

The Punjab government has decided to set up field hospitals at its parks to treat patients who have contracted COVID-19. Asif Mehmood, the chairperson of the Parks and Horticulture Authority, said that these field hospitals will serve as quarantine centres when the burden on hospitals increases. For this matter he has issued instructions to administrations of different cities to follow these directives.

In Rawalpindi, Hilal-e-Ahmar has set up a 200-bed field hospital at a park which will be used for treating the coornavirus, according to Hilal-e-Ahmar chairperson Abrarul Haq.
