No shortage of beds, ventilators for COVID-19 patients: Zafar Mirza

Islamabad (HRNW) There is no shortage of beds, ventilators and medical facilities for COVID-19 patients, said the Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Health Dr Zafar Mirza at a press conference in Islamabad.

He said only 28% of available ventilators are being used for patients with COVID-19, according to Radio Pakistan. On Sunday, Dr Mirza also said that 723 patients were in critical condition and 201 of them were on ventilators.

A Resource Management System that collects and updates data on COVID-19 patients in real-time has been developed in Pakistan, the PM’s aide announced. The system will be linked to hospitals across the country.

Hospitals can give live updates of their data and available medical resources, said Chief Executive Officer of National Information Technology Board Shabahat Ali.
