ISLAMABAD: While expressing concern over rise in the number of Covid-19 cases following emergence of the Omicron variant in Pakistan, stakeholders have emphasised the need for making coordinated efforts by the government as well as private organisations to effectively cope with the situation.

They expressed these remarks while speaking at an event organised by an Italian organisation to reflect upon lessons learnt during implementation of the project ‘Improving National Capacity to Respond to Covid-19 Pandemic in Pakistan’. All provinces were targeted during the course of the project.

The project was funded by the European Union Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (Echo) for a duration of 18 months.
