KARACHI (92 News) – Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has vowed 99 percent implementation of the decisions taken by the Centre. Addressing a press conference on Friday, he said that the lockdown would be eased from Monday, not from today. He said that shops will remain open from Fajr prayers to 5pm. “However, shopping malls, big markets and plazas will remain closed. A complete lockdown will be observed on Saturday and Sunday,” he said. The chief minister asked the prime minister to give loans on easy installments. “We have an acute shortage of ventilators. Our first attempt is to isolate the people at homes. We are trying to improve the facilities,” he said. He said that the Sindh government had been following the directions of the federal government since April 1. “The same SOPs are being followed in consultation with the four provinces,” he added. Murad Ali Shah claimed Sindh’s healthcare system is much better than other provinces. “We will complete a 400-bed hospital in NIPA Chowrangi in three months. The hospital will have 100 ventilators,” he said.
