Murad urges provinces to properly certify people when permitting them to travel

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, participating in the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) meeting headed by Federal Minister Asad Umar, said that three members of the Tabligh Jamaat returned from KPK to their home district Tando Mohammad Khan.

All three had a recovery certificate, but when they were tested here, they came as coronavirus positive. “This is something serious and must be addressed accordingly,” he urged.

The KPK government assured the Chief Minister that there would be no such mistake in the future and added that they would conduct an inquiry on how they were given health certificates when they were negative.

The meeting agreed to link the NCOC with a national digital one-line integration system from where it would be connected with a provincial task force headed by the Chief Ministers.

The system would have a dashboard where relevant notifications, quarantine facilities data, number of patients, number of suspects, samples taken for tests, admission in isolation centers, home isolation, hospitalization, lab facilities, and their performance data would be upgraded regularly.

The national database would be linked to the provinces giving both the divisional and district level complete access to the dashboard.

The Chief Minister said that the Chief Secretary and Health Department would also have access to the data.

Mr Shah also shared the status of the coronavirus spread in Sindh and discussed the measures he has taken so far.
