LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that the number of coronavirus vaccination centres is being increased in Lahore and other parts of the province to accommodate more and more citizens every day.
In a statement on Wednesday, the chief minister said that as compared with other provinces, more people are being vaccinated every day in Punjab and the target will be timely achieved due to the increased number of vaccination centres.
He appealed to the citizens to wear face masks and follow corona standard operating procedures (SOPs) during Eid-ul-Fitr prayers. The citizens should also remain confined to their homes to avoid the virus, he said. The health department is playing a commendable job and the Punjab government is also striving to save the lives of the citizens, he added.
Separately, Sardar Usman Buzdar strongly condemned Israel’s bombardment and missile attack on Gaza, saying that Israel is committing the worst cruelty by targeting women and children.
The chief minister regretted that Israel has violated all international laws to play with fire and blood in Palestine. Regrettably, Israel has violated all human rights by targeting innocent children and women and the international community should take immediate action to stop the Israeli aggression, he stressed.
The chief minister stressed upon the global community to proactively react to save the unarmed Palestinians from the savagery of their arch-enemy. Practical steps are needed in this regard and the continued silence of the international community over Israeli aggression is criminal negligence, he regretted.
“We express complete solidarity with the defenceless Palestinians and I pray for the health and early recovery of the injured Palestinians,” the chief minister further said.
