He highlighted some crucial global and local statistics related to the number of people being affected by the virus. Dr. Mumtaz stressed on the adoption of preventive measures such as regular washing of hands, avoiding close contact and covering mouth & nose while coughing and sneezing, in order to avoid the risk of contracting the disease. Demonstrations about certain safety precautions were also provided by the doctor so that participants could protect themselves well.
