Participating in the NCOC meeting via video link, the provincial chief executive said his government was ensuring availability of oxygen throughout the hospitals of Balochistan. He briefed the participants on the situation arising due to the third Covid wave and the progress made by the Balochistan Awami Party-led government in controlling the spread of the virus in Balochistan. “The third wave of coronavirus is intense and dangerous,” he said. “Educational institutions are closed in light of the recommendations made by the NCOC.”
