ISLAMABAD: Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing on Thursday said that he firmly believes that Pakistan would be able to get rid of COVID-19 pandemic soon.
He made these remarks on the inauguration of the Isolation Hospital and Infections Treatment Centre (IHITC) in the federal capital.
“I am proud to participate in the inaugural ceremony of the hospital,” Yao Jing said and added that it is a miracle for the Pakistani government to develop the hospital in the least possible time period.
The ambassador said that he has observed the working of the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) and it is playing its part in tackling COVID-19 in the country.
It is pertinent to mention here that Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated the Isolation Hospital and Infections Treatment Centre on Thursday.
The 250-bed isolation hospital has been constructed in record 40 days at a cost of about Rs980 million. It will meet additional requirements to ease pressure on the capital’s hospitals.
The isolation hospital’s charge has been handed over to the National Disaster Management Authority. NDMA Chairman Lt. General Muhammad Afzal briefed the prime minister about the health facility.
Planning Minister Asad Umar, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chinese Ambassador Yao Jing, and other senior officials were also present on the occasion. – TLTP
