Hospitals asked to prepare contingency plans for Covid-19 treatment


The Punjab Healthcare Commission (PHC) directed the private hospitals on Friday to have contingency plans for treatment of coronavirus patients on a notice of 48 hours. According to the PHC spokesperson, the direction had been issued to those private hospitals which had previously been providing treatment to Covid-19 patients.

Most of hospitals have reduced or discontinued Covid-19 treatment facilities due to the low number of coronavirus patients. However, keeping in view the recent rise in the number of Covid-19 patients, all such hospitals will have a contingency plan to resume all arrangements for treatment of patients on a notice of 48 hours, said the spokesperson.

Furthermore, the respective administrations of these hospitals have also been instructed to ensure the implementation of all preventive measures regarding Covid-19, which were communicated previously.
