The Pakistani government conceded that the hospital could be built in record time due to the support of China

On Thursday, the Prime Minister’s Office of Pakistan tweeted that PM Imran Khan would inaugurate a dedicated Coronavirus treatment facility in Islamabad. The 250-bedded Islamabad Isolation Hospital & Infectious Treatment Centre (IHITC) was reportedly constructed in 40 days.

Cabinet ministers such as Asad Umar, Shibli Faraz, Army Chief Bajwa, and Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing were present during the event. As per reports, the hospital was completed at a cost of 98 crores PKR.

According to Chinese media, not only Pakistan thanked China for its ‘firm support’ in fighting the pandemic, the Pakistani government conceded that the hospital could be built in record time due to the support of China.

“The Chinese government and the Chinese people have been helping Pakistan prevent and control COVID-19, providing a large number of medical supplies, sending medical expert teams and aiding Pakistan with the building of the IHITC”, Imran Khan conceded, according to a report by Xinhuanet. Besides, the Pakistani side announced that they could learn from the experience of China in containing the pandemic as soon as possible.
