Alluding to the increasing demand for protective equipment and ventilators in the world after the breakout of the pandemic, the prime minister said that Pakistan is fortunate that China is giving us preference in the provision of the equipment after controlling the virus in its own land.

The prime minister regretted that the health sector was not given preference over the last seven decades. He said that the standards of our hospitals were better up till the 60s and 70s but then allocations for both the education and the health sectors were brought down.

Earlier, the prime minister accompanied by the Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed visited different sections of the hospital and reviewed the facilities there.
