He said the PRCS has rendered remarkable services in containing the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, adding that not only a nationwide awareness campaign was launched but all-out support to the government was also extended in screening and quarantine operations across country.
Abrar ul Haq said while efforts to contain the pandemic continue, people need to implement all precautionary measures in true letter and spirit.
He also stressed the need for people to get themselves vaccinated at the earliest as per schedule announced by the government.
Abrar ul Haq called upon the youth to come forward and donate blood to save lives of those in need amid pandemic.
