RAWALPINDI: (HRNW) Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Thursday held a telephone conversation with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Co-Chair Bill Gates and discussed COVID-19 situation and polio eradication drive in Pakistan.

During the telephonic conversation, General Qamar Javed Bajwa termed the fight against the crippling disease and the COVID-19 “national cause,” said the military’s media wing.
