In a video message on Friday, Nasir announced the provincial government’s full financial support for the research labs and institutes in this regard. He did not mention the amount or nature of the prize.
The announcement has come at a time when there is a panic-like situation in the province due to a rapid increase in Covid-19 cases. So far, 16 cases have emerged in Sindh, out of 22 across the country. Two of the patients have also recovered and were sent home from hospitals.
Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry mocked Sindh Minister for Local Government Nasir Hussain Shah’s promise of a prize for any person or organisation that develops a vaccine for the novel coronavirus.
In a tweet, the federal minister said that the person who develops a vaccine for COVID19 will have enough money to fix the “economic mess” created by the PPP in Sindh.
“So you (Shah) will get the prize,” Chaudhry tweeted.
