The Sindh government has released Rs11.2 million for the Expo field hospital set up for suspected coronavirus patients in Karachi, according to a statement issued by the Sindh CM house.
The amount will be used for the procurement of necessary equipment, gadgets and food for patients.
The statement said a 88-year-old man donated Rs1 million to the coronavirus fund on the appeal of Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.
The man, who had requested anonymity, wrote a letter to the chief minister saying he is a “retired person of 88 years”.
“In respect to your appeal, I submit herewith a Cheque of a humble amount in face of unheard and dreadful epidemic,” the letter said.
