Bilawal expresses “anguish” after his protocol claims infant’s life outside Karachi hospital

KARACHI: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari tweeted his personal “anguish” at the death of a 10-month-old infant reportedly caused when the entrance to Karachi’s Civil Hospital was closed off to the public because of protocol and security surrounding his visit to inaugurate a trauma centre there.

The PPP chairman also said that he would personally inquire into the incident and determine what exactly happened. That said, the visit has been severely criticized as having directly led to the death of 10-month-old Bisma whose father was trying to take her to the emergency services area of Karachi’s Civil Hospital.

According to details, CM Sindh and PPP Chairman along with Speaker Sindh Assembly reached Civil Hospital to inaugurate the newly constructed Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Trauma Centre.

The entrance of the general public was banned due to the VVIP protocol. A huge traffic jam took place outside the medical facility whereas the ambulances were also stuck.

The infant, suffering from measles, lost her life as her father was bringing the girl to the medical facility. The doctors stated that the infant’s life could have been saved if she was brought to the hospital 10 minutes prior to her death.

The father of the baby girl, expressing sadness and grief over the death of her daughter, said that the leaders do not care for anybody but themselves.

“There was a traffic jam outside the hospital. I had to abandon my motorcycle in order to reach the medical facility. I had reached the hospital but they refused to let me in”, he said.
