Umar, who is also head of the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) chaired a meeting today and reviewed the coronavirus situation in the country. The meeting reviewed the spread of coronavirus as well as the availability of beds at hospitals.

"SOP compliance remains very weak & pressure on hospitals is increasing," Umar tweeted. He further said that the NCOC has asked the administration to ramp up compliance enforcement to avoid a crises like situation.
