ISLAMABAD, Mar 28 (APP):Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Saturday said this is a crucial moment for the nation as corona virus is a contagious pandemic so the opposition should also extend its political, moral, and financial support to help masses in curbing the virus.

“The government has been tackling the COVID-19 effectively as Pakistan bore less damage than other developed nations including America in the world,” he stated.
Former PML-N government had left the medical institutions in deteriorated conditions as only 2700 ventilators were present in the hospitals and out of which only 1500 were operational, that shows their immense apathy towards these institutions, he further said.
