Executive Director, Jinnah Post Graduate Medi-cal Centre (JPMC), Dr Seem Gambol told APP Wednesday, the young worker of a local tannery was brought to the hospital on Sunday in quite a precarious condition.
“Moiz, reportedly handling animal hides was immediately admitted and following necessary in-vestigations was shifted to intensive care unit with adequate provision for isolation,” she said in reply to a question.
JPMC chief mentioned that two more cases of Congo Virus were also brought to her hospital from Quetta and managed to survive due to medical care provided to them.
