Sindh to hunt down those coming from abroad

In a major development in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the Sindh government on Thursday decided to trace all those who had entered the province from abroad.

These people would be hunted down through intelligence sharing for which police and other law enforcement agencies have been directed to play an active role.

During a meeting chaired by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, a decision was also taken to distribute free one-month ration, under which two million bags would be distributed initially.

The Karachi corps commander, who also attended the meeting, assured the chief minister of full support amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Establishment of a 10,000-bed quarantine centre/hospital at the Expo Centre Karachi with the assistance of the Army is also among the other decisions taken at the meeting. A committee headed by Sindh Minister Saeed Ghani and Karachi Commissioner Brig (retd) Sami will supervise the treatment.
