In a series of tweets on Sunday, Dr Mirza said the booths would provide answers to queries about coronavirus. He said another landmark in a very short time was the completion of coronavirus clinical care and prevention guidelines. “It includes full instructions on case definition, inpatient/outpatient treatment, handling of diagnostic samples and even home care. In order to provide assistance to the Pakistani community in China, the Embassy of Pakistan has established hotlines which may be contacted,” he added.
