QUETTA/ LAHORE: A specialised ‘coronavirus training’ organised for rescuers of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) and Balochistan concluded at the Emergency Services Academy here on Friday.

Punjab Emergency Service Director General Dr Rizwan Naseer suspended all training activities after the declaration of a corona emergency by the government. However, he stressed the need for imparting training to rescuers before they are sent in the field for screening, handling and shifting suspected or infected coronavirus patients to hospitals. He said a specialised “short corona training course” was organised for the emergency services personnel of K-P and Balochistan.

The closing ceremony of the training was organised in accordance with the new corona rescue drill protocols, which included social distancing, use of face-masks, gloves, and overalls worn by all participants.
