Private hospitals again turn down Sindh govt’ request for coronavirus beds

Karachi’s private hospitals on Thursday asked the Sindh government to utilize available capacity at its disposal before asking them for allocation of wards to treat COVID-19 cases.

Expressing strong reservations over the health department’s directives to reserve 20% of beds at private hospitals for coronavirus patients, the Private Hospitals and Clinics Association (PHCA) urged the authorities “not to infect” all private hospitals in Karachi and instead admit coronavirus patients to the Indus Hospital, the Ojha Campus of the Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS), the Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) and the field isolation center established at the Expo Centre.
