The Punjab government has decided to form a provincial volunteer force to deliver medicines to hospitals and look after patients, Radio Pakistan reported Saturday.

According to the state-run radio, the decision was taken by Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid in a meeting. The volunteers would be called “Mujahid Volunteer Force”.

The health minister said that the provincial authorities will set up a helpline for the registration of volunteers.

The decision comes a day after Prime Minister Imran Khan had announced that his government is going to form a “Corona Relief Tiger Force”. The force, he had said, would provide food to poor families on their door steps if the country goes into a complete lockdown.
