LAHORE: Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid said on Friday that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was also a Pakistani citizen and that his health card had been made, but that he was not present.
“If he returns to Pakistan, he will be given a health card,” Yasmin Rashid said in a statement. She said that almost 30% of the Punjab’s population had begun to use the card.
She stated that an application was developed for recording complaints about the health card. She stated that the Punjab Health Initiative Management Company (PHIMC) was attempting to settle any issues about the card. She went on to say that the concerns had been evaluated by the Secretary of Health.
According to the Punjab health minister, the majority of people pay taxes, hence those who pay taxes should be supplied with a health card.
On January 23, Dr Yasmin Rashid ruled out the likelihood of PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif’s clinical test data being manipulated during his treatment at the Services Hospital.
She had stated that there was no potential of report tampering because the entire system was transparent and continuously monitored by experienced people. She had also stated that the ex-prime minister was very unwell at the time of his departure for London.
“Former PM was shifted to the Services Hospital in critical condition. He was a dengue patient with multiple co-morbidities like cardiac, diabetes and high blood pressure.”
According to the minister, a dengue patient can recover even if his platelet count drops to 2,000. “Nawaz did not bleed, even though his platelet count was extremely low.” “There was barely minor bleeding from his gums,” she explained.
