Those who claim that Sindh is competing with Europe in healthcare facilities should bow their heads in shame.

On Wednesday, a poor woman gave birth to two babies outside a government hospital in Umarkot town in Tharparkar district.

Reports said she was refused entry into the hospital; however, the hospital administration denied the claim.

District Health Officer Dr. Saleem blamed dilapidated roads for the incident. “Our staff was on duty in hospital but they could not reach timely.”
