QUETTA: Balochistan Meeting lawmaker Zabid Ali Reki on Friday censured the provincial authorities over the absence of well being services in Mashkel tehsil, a Pak-Iran border city in Washuk district, regardless of a surge in coronavirus circumstances within the province.
“Health emergency has been announced across the province but towns bordering with Iran are more vulnerable due to the epicentre of coronavirus in the neighbouring country. In spite of this fact, the provincial government did not provide basic health facilities to the people of Mashkel,” stated the lawmaker in a press convention.
The lawmaker lamented the federal government’s “irresponsible attitude” of dealing with the well being services on the border city, saying the lethal contagion has killed “thousands of people in Iran” and urging the authorities to concentrate on the problem. Up to now the lethal virus has claimed greater than 2,500 lives, together with a member of clerical physique, in Iran.
The provincial lawmaker added that Mashkel is disadvantaged of screening kits and quarantine services.
