The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has converted the Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre in Karachi into a temporary sanctuary for medical staff working at the makeshift hospital at Expo Centre. The exemplary step taken by the PCB comes in the wake of the escalating situation of the coronavirus spread in Pakistan.
The PCB’s move has been done to aid the Sindh Government’s efforts at curbing the prevalence of the coronavirus that has already infected close to 400 people in the province. Earlier, the knockout matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) were postponed at the last minute due to the threat of the virus.
“As a small token of our appreciation and acknowledgement to these unsung heroes and as part of our duty of care, the PCB is pleased to offer its state-of-the-art Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre as a temporary lodging and boarding for the paramedic staff working at Expo Centre hospital,” PCB Chief Operating Officer Salman Naseer stated.
