COVID-19 Sponsorship Catalogue

Background

The World Health Organization has declared the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as a pandemic. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but do not develop any symptoms and do not feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

Project Overview:

Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) is a specialized cancer centre however, in the wake of the current situation, we are mindful of our role as a leading healthcare institution of the country and are trying to do what we can in our capacity. Since the last few years, SKMCH&RC has already been playing an important role in helping the public hospitals by providing them guidelines and best practices for infection control. Since the outbreak of the disease, we have taken a number of steps to disseminate authentic information about it and also provide guidelines for the general public and healthcare providers to implement. Being one of the major social media influencers of the country we are also using our social media platforms to educate the public and help to reduce the panic by debunking some of the myths associated with the disease. We have conducted live panel discussions to help answer some of the most frequent misconceptions associated with the disease.

The entire process, starting from evaluation of the patients to their admission and disease management, would require additional resources. We rely on your generous support to procure life-saving equipment and other necessary resources for providing the best possible care to patients. Your support will go a long way in saving lives by reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with this disease.
