ISLAMABAD: Chairman of the House Senate Senate Committee Abdul Rehman Malik on Saturday wrote a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan demanding the imposition of a limited military curfew from July 15 to August for the application of anti-coronavirus SOPs and other actions and suggestions.
In a letter to the PM, Rehman Malik stated that let us understand it was a national problem and you must at least consider these suggestions when formulating a national anti-coronavirus action plan. “Based on my local and international research, I have made a prediction some time ago, that if the army curfew is not enforced for the application of strict SOPs, the number of corona virus patients and death rates could increase to unimaginable limits in Pakistan. The same thing has been proven right, because this nation has experienced an increase in the number of infections and deaths, “he said in his letter.
In his letter to PM Imran Khan, Senator Abdul Rehman Malik recommended 10 suggestions which include:
To impose an army curfew for enforcement of anti-coronavirus SOPs without further delay.
To declare health emergencies for July, August, and September, 2020.
The Promulgate Emergency Law, which penalizes hoarders, counterfeiters, illicit marketers of drugs, medical equipment, overfilling of medical care related to COVID-19, and daily commodities; and they must be tried briefly and punished.
TV channels must be instructed to provide news about people arrested and convicted of this emergency-based crime.
To increase the treatment capacity of COVID-19 patients by building a temporary corona virus treatment center in August is likely to be difficult.
The Chinese government may be asked to send more Chinese doctors and nurses to care for coronavirus patients in Pakistan.
To ensure the availability of all life-saving drugs, including Panadol and instruments. Import taxes and duties, can be removed temporarily to fill the gap.
Lift all and all import duties and restrictions on the import and sale of domestic protective equipment (PPE) for doctors and medical staff.
Risk benefits and increase salaries of doctors and paramedical staff to 100% who treat COVID-19 patients, and to offer them compensation equivalent to the police, who give their lives according to duty.
Special arrangements can be made on the occasion of Eidul Azha for observing written SOPs and enthusiasm when the virus around the mass becomes very airborne and there will be more fear of the spread of COVID-19.
