Islamabad: In the midst of a global pandemic, a Pakistani doctor is seen dealing with a suspected Covid-19 patient using a shopping bag to protect his face, a tell-tale sign of the poor state of the Health Care services in Pakistan. Doctors and paramedics are ill-equipped or forced to work in unsafe environments highlighting how unprepared Pakistan, a state with 220 million citizens, is to deal with a calamity like the coronavirus.
