SUKKUR - Medical Superintendent (MS), Sukkur Civil Hospital, Dr Tasleem Akhtar Khamisani on Saturday has said effective implementation of coronavirus SOPs by the Sindh government has yielded positive results to lower the spread of Covid-19 in Sukkur.

Talking to Media reporters, he said due to appropriate steps of the district administration and the health authorities, now Sukkur had almost become a coronavirus-free district as not a single Covid-19 case had been reported here after Eid. He said due to the control over the spread of Covid-19, coronavirus ward, especially designated for coronavirus patients here had almost been closed down because only two coronavirus patients were in the ward.

Dr Khamisani said the possibility of the recurrence of coronavirus could not be ruled out if people ignored coronavirus SOPs during Muharram days.

He stressed the need of abiding by Covid-19 SOPs till the complete elimination of the disease.
