National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) officials apprised emergency responders about Resource Management System (RMS) through which 1,579 hospitals are linked for visibility of various facilities and availability of inventory. Out of these 1,579 hospitals, data of 804 hospitals across Pakistan is visible on RMS system as of today (Sunday).
