A vehicle returning from Nawabshah after delivering the COVID-19 vaccine to the city’s vaccination center met an accident on Mehran Highway.
The incident occurred on Sunday, in which five lady health workers in the vehicle got injured and were shifted to a nearby hospital for first aid. The medical staff at the hospital said that they are out of danger.
The termination of DDO District East, Dr. Annela Qureshi, came amid reports that the families of politicians were being given COVID-19 vaccine shots in Sindh.
The social media was abuzz with reports that former Sindh governor and PML-N leader, Mohammad Zubair’s daughter, and son in law were administered the vaccine in Karachi. It is pertinent to mention that the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines were originally meant for frontline healthcare workers of the province.
Unhappy with the development, Federal Minister and Head of the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC), Asad Umar, warned Sindh against showing privileged treatment with politicians in this regard. He said that the federal authorities could take over the vaccine handling from the provinces if they are unable to manage it.
