President Dr Arif Alvi has termed the doctors as heroes who lost their lives battling against coronavirus pandemic.

In a tweet on Monday on the death of pathologist Dr Aurangzeb and paediatrician Dr Muhammad Azam Khan due to COVID-19, the President expressed deep grief.

He also said the nation acknowledged their sacrifice. The heroes did their best to help people survive the dangerous disease.

The President also offered condolences to the families of the deceased doctors.

Earlier in a day, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Dr Zafar Mirza has obliged the citizens to wear cloth masks whenever leaving home or at crowded places.

Dr Zafar Mirza in a tweet said, “N-95 mask is a specialized mask only for frontline health workers who take care of critically ill COVID-19 patients in ICUs and HDUs.”

“For the general public, face mask in crowded places can be surgical or medical masks or even home-made cloth mask but not N95 mask,” he added in a Tweet.
