Major government and private hospitals in Peshawar have run out of beds for COVID-19 patients because of increasing COVID-19 cases, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly was informed on Wednesday, reported Dawn.

The newspaper quoted the Culture and labor minister Shaukat Ali Yousafzai telling the house that two government-run tertiary healthcare facilities in Peshawar, including Hayatabad Medical Complex and Khyber Teaching Hospital, and a private hospital had exhausted their capacity to accommodate COVID-19 patients, and currently, only the Lady Reading Hospital was receiving such patients.

The pandemic had plunged the global economy into recession, he said, while the second wave of the virus had placed pressure on the country’s health system, especially Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Earlier, it was reported that ten doctors in Pakistan died of the coronavirus in less than five days.
