The district administration has ordered the closure of all government and private hospitals and clinics in Mingora and its adjacent areas for two weeks over coronavirus spread.

The strange decision has come in the name of coronavirus threat when the country is under a medical emergency and closure of health facilities has left all dumbfounded.

Deputy Commissioner Saqib Raza Aslam has asked people and patients not to visit hospitals. Instead, the doctors would give free advice online to the patients.

Gynaecologists and other emergency doctors would be available on call only.
