While fighting at such close proximity with a virus that is highly contagious, it’s a shame that Pakistani doctors haven’t been provided with apt medical protective suits that could protest them. Although aid has been arriving in the shape of protective suits and masks for the medical staff, there is still a shortage in the country.
