Doctors in Pakistan are stressing that N95 masks and specialised personal protective equipment (PPE) kits are not meant for the general public and are only needed for healthcare providers dealing with infectious diseases, including COVID-19.

“The general public definitely does not need to use the N95 masks for coronavirus,” stresses Dr Summiya Nazimuddin, a consultant medical microbiologist at Shaukat Khanum and the general secretary of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Society Pakistan (MMIDSP).

"Also, people need to know that they cannot wear this (N95) mask for more than a week and it must be discarded once it’s distorted while surgical ones can be reused but must be thrown away if they get wet."

  1. What india does

    1) Airlifting indian citizens from different parts of the world.

    2) 3 lac testing kits(2 lacs under production), 52 testing centers.

    3) By the end of this week, there will be 72 functional ICMR labs for Covid-19 testing and also 49 others in the government system. We are also in talks with 51 private laboratories, accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, to start testing.

    4) Contribution of 10m $ to covoid 19 task force.

    Whatever government does we are never gonna value it.

  2. ATTENTION: Chemists/Pharmacists/Chemical Engineers/ Healthcare providers
    Here is a guide to local production of Hand Rub recommended by WHO.
    As there is a shortage of hand sanitizers or if it’s available, a bottle of sanitizer is being sold much higher than the original price by opportunists. And yet there are companies producing hand sanitizers and distributing it either free of cost or at nominal price as part of their CSR activities.
    To overcome the shortage of this scarce commodity with the spread of COVID-19 across the world, here is a guide for Chemists/Pharmacists/Chemical Engineers/Healthcare providers, to prepare hand rub recommended by WHO.
    We should play our role and do what we can in our capacity for humanity!

  3. Ye in doctors ki nahili hy jo virus yahan pohncha hy taaky inki kamaee ho saky or to or jese hi china me cases samny aye to masks pakistan milna band hogaye ye sab in situation me b kamany me lagy hy.

  4. WHO has already funded us but still doctors are not equipped seems the govt officials, and the connected will only benefit from it

  5. Don’t blame governments rather public should take precautionary measures on their own. We as nation always shift responsibility on others.

  6. Pathetic situation in Sindh, public ignoring provincial authorities guidelines, illitratracy and lack of knowledge is a big challange rather than any disease, public only listen and follow true leadership rather than fabricated one.

  7. Then the govt should issue orders to stop selling these to general public! Hoarding will cause shortage, enough to cause medical workers to not have any!

  8. Yes, but the federal government and the media created such a panic that people are wearing N-95 even if they don’t have the virus or they’re not in contact with an infected person :/

  9. Indeed it’s the govt who is spreading lies, anyone who is supposed to work in gatherings is recommended to put on mask if he or she can manage it…the govt is telling such things coz they cannot bring such huge no of masks and people will be the idea is to sedate the people through lies called could disagree
