The COVID-19 pandemic has left people in Pakistan scrambling for medical supplies and treatments.

The prices of basic devices such pulse oximeters that measure blood oxygen levels have skyrocketed and there are many reports in local and international media about the black market for plasma.

SAMAA Health has compiled a list of contacts for oxygen cylinder and pulse oximeter suppliers and verified places for donors and recipients to contact for plasma. As of July 10, we have also added contacts for coronavirus drugs actemra, remdesivir and dexamethasone, which were shared by DRAP.

This list is not exhaustive or complete but an initial attempt to bring you, our reader the most useful information. If readers would like to add more resources or point out problems with any of the contacts they can get in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter or at taneer.ahmed@samaa.tv.
