A Paskistani physician who has screened and treated coronavirus patients in the Middle East in recent weeks has reportedly died of the disease.
American-Pakistani activist @SJPeace, said the doctor who identified Usama Riaz knew there were no Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), but he continued to treat patients with coronavirus.
This is Dr. Usama Riaz. In recent weeks, he has screened and treated patients with the coronavirus in Pakistan. He knew there was no PPE. He still held out. Today he lost his own battle with the coronavirus, but he gave life and hope to so much more. KNOW HIS NAME
“If you save a life, it’s like you’ve saved all humanity.” His story and the story of all those battles must be written to remember history. This is sacrifice, heroism and martyrdom. (Even if you don’t know a Muslim or have a friend, you can do that now. Follow)
In Dr Riaz’s last video before he died of coronavirus, he advised Pakistanis to take the virus seriously and also listen to health authorities.
