Pakistani designer Asim Jofa has prepared a prototype of protective gear for doctors in a bid to address the shortage of specialized wear for medical staff treating coronavirus patients in Pakistan.
These protective gears are essential for doctors and paramedic staff to wear before treating coronavirus patients to protect themselves from being affected by the virus. However, as coronavirus cases are accelerating in Pakistan, the shortage of protective gears endangers the lives of front line doctors and paramedic staff.
With all your love and support we have finally started the production of our protective gears for healthcare workers by getting them approved by esteemed team of Dr. Seemin Jamali, Executive Director at JPMC.#AsimJofaCares #Fightback #KeepsupportingAJ #Inittogether #Changemakers pic.twitter.com/yztkWIScJT

The swift initiative of Asim Jofa to support the administration received appreciation and encouragement from people on social media.
At a time of global pandemic coronavirus rocking the economies worldwide, Pakistan is increasingly dependent on the foreign supplies of medical equipment to facilitate the frontline doctors and related staff in fighting coronavirus in the country.
Every local help would be appreciated since PM Khan has been repeatedly asserting that ruling dispensation entails local co-operation from the citizens to tail off coronavirus in Pakistan.
In his multiple addresses to the people, he has been appealing people to follow the guidelines and feed the impoverished and lower-income groups who are most affected by the lockdown and suspension of economic activities in Pakistan.
