Listen to what he’s saying here & then go through this thread to see how false this statement is:
“Zaireen from Iran at Taftan were to be tested for #Corona at border”
He knew it’s a lie & telling it to make himself the hero!
After 18th amendment Health is a provincial subject & strictly a responsibility of provincial govts.
Due to Expensive & limited no of testing kits, only HEALTH SCREENING was to be conducted for Zaireen.
Even rich countries as US & UK has shortage of testing kits.
With availability of only 12-17000 testing kits with fed govt available for all #coronavirus patients among 220mil people in Pakistan, just Balochistan’s Health dept couldn’t be expected to test all 8-16000 Zaireen at Taftan.
Thermo screening was the only option.
Note: no one claimed that #coronavirus testing was going to conducted on all returning Zaireen as falsely claimed by CM Sindh.
But a 14 day quarantine is difficult for any human being even at home & after a few days the Zaireen began complaining for lack of facilities at Taftan.
This was an extremely difficult position for resource constrained Balochistan government.
Despite this immense pressure #Balochistan govt maintained the quarantine.
Balochistan still deserves the credit for hosting thousands of #coronavirus suspects away from other cities.
But these Zaireen were NOT sent home, but handed to their respective provincial health depts for Coronavirus Testing, Quarantine & Isolation.
All respective provincial Health Depts began receiving these Zaireen in prepared Quarantine facilitates, testing them for #coronavirus & isolating infected patients.
WHO-Pakistan & UNICEF-Pakistan had to issue clarifications denying ‘circulation of fake messages misinformation about #COVID19 in Pakistan.”
All preparations #Sindh govt, CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah & Sindh’s Health Minister Azra Pechuho were able to make was due to the 14 days respite they received after the emergency response of the quarantine arrangements of Balochistan gov & fed govt at Taftan.
himself explaining why Sindh govt is not conducting “Mass Testing” debunking his own blame of Balochistan govt.
I had to explain it to him with a little more detail, let’s hope he understands the point that
#Sindh Govt only followed the plan & tried to stage a propaganda coup.
