KARACHI: Sindh government on Sunday received a rare appreciation over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic in the province when Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Affairs Ali Haider Zaidi, who is a member of the rival PTI said Sindh has “done well” to deal with the situation.
Zaidi said he was satisfied with the arrangements made at the vaccination centre to carry out vaccination of the masses.
He was briefed on the occasion that so far, 85,000 people had been vaccinated at the Khaliqdina Hall.
The federal minister said that overall, the Sindh government had done well to deal with the coronavirus situation. He, however, added that at the same time he would duly point out wherever there were lacunas in the arrangements so that the health emergency could be tackled.
The PTI leader, otherwise a fierce critic of the PPP government, also appreciated the move of the Sindh government to vaccinate the elderly people at home to protect them against the coronavirus infection.
He said the Punjab government had purchased the coronavirus vaccine on its own and the Sindh government should follow suit.
