I am working in a govt hospital medical unit and we are not provided any sort of PPE's, can you believe that we are not even provided n95 for those working in COVID units and had to arrange it ourselves.

I got exposed to a COVID19 patient while passing CVP, She later turned out COVID positive, and two of my colleague who developed symptoms earlier then me, turned positive as well and I had sent my swab yesterday.

My duties in COVID units are starting from 26 May

So they have sent PPE's to other countries as a good gesture while we are working without PPE's.

I just don't get it

It might possibly be done for preparing stage for opening up FMS and military equipment. Such gestures are only symbolic but have a lot of potential to create image and environment for better cooperation chances.

Lockdown is over, Covid isn't. Our health workers and the admin/security staff don't have access to PPE yet we are exporting and gifting to outside. I guess the lives of a few thousand people even if many of them die is less worthy of having good relations with foreign countries like USA and we have do give such gestures. The govt must have done cost/benefit analysis and then preffered gifting.

health care providers are using shopping bags while PAF air crew is wearing gogles and N95 mask. the americans are wearing simple surgical masks. misuse of scarce resources.

Pakistani people can also wear non surgical masks and scarves ... heck you can make DIY masks if you really need. Its not that hard and plenty of people I work with here in CA made masks at home when the ones available were only being sold to police, firefighters and healthcare workers. Its not that hard and don't blame the PAF for sending a token number of masks to the US for the greater good for Pakistan. We are a textile producing nation, and if hospitals or doctors dont have masks simple, its their and their administrations fault and not that of the armed forces. Stop looking to blame others for your problems or ineptness Id say.
