The government has decided to award the Nishan-e-Haider to all the people working in the frontline in the fight against the novel coronavirus.

The award will be presented to all the “corona heroes” by President Arif Alvi.

The ceremony will take place at the inauguration of the Corona Heroes Wall at Governor House in Punjab on October 27. The wall will exhibit photos and names of the people who helped contain the virus with limited resources.

The ceremony will be attended by the president and governor of all four provinces.

The Nishan-e-Haider is the highest military gallantry award of Pakistan. It literally means “Emblem of the Lion” in Urdu.

Numerous doctors and nurses have been working day and night to curb the spread of the coronavirus in the country since February. So far, Pakistan has reported 320,463 cases, 6,601 deaths and 305,080 recoveries from the virus.
