Pakistan’s successful efforts of handling the Covid-19 pandemic are being lauded across the world. Among many other noteworthy organisations, the WHO has been extending great support and appreciation to Pakistan for ably handling and reducing the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
The Director General of the organisation, Tedros Adhanom, said that the country is “among those that the world needs to learn from.”
Pakistan's Prime Minister, Imran Khan, has also been acknowledging the efforts of the country and its people towards fighting the pandemic.
He also praised the on-ground efforts of Capital University of Science and Technology, Islamabad (a project by Punjab Group of Colleges) to ensure safety and security of its students, staff and faculty.
As educational institutes re-open across Pakistan, PGC is all set to welcome students, ensuring complete safety through a set of well-planned SOPs.
The group has launched a nationwide campaign 'Renew Your Normal', to build awareness for the youth by introducing and ensuring adequate health protocols laid by the government and WHO.
The Punjab Group has also taken extensive safety measures to ensure all SOPs are followed to fight Covid-19.
Following are some of the key measures introduced:
Installation of disinfectant-gates at the entrance of each campus.
Availability of thermal temperature scanner at the entrance for recording the temperature of each person entering the premises.
Ensuring that students, teachers and staff members across all campuses always wear face masks.
Maintaining social distance at the entrance of each campus; special guiding signage has been installed with specific areas cordoned off to manage cues.
Ensuring linear flow across each campus through directional signage installation on the floor/pathways/walkways.
Revision of time tables so that classrooms are functional at 50% of original capacity to ensure minimum student traffic.
Frequent disinfection of high contact areas like door handles, railings, water taps etc.
Introduction of one isolation room in each campus for immediate seclusion of students and staff showing symptoms during their stay at the campus.
Have a look at the numerous other systems the PGC has set in place so far:
The Punjab Group of Colleges (PGC) is one of the largest growing education networks in Pakistan.
The network includes multiple schools, colleges, e-Learning facilities along with three chartered universities across Pakistan including Capital University of Science and Technology, Islamabad, Mohammad Ali Jinnah University, Karachi and University of Central Punjab, Lahore.
Since March, PGC has taken multiple measures and initiatives to ensure uninterrupted provision of quality education for students. From well-planned and interactive online classes to e-Portal services, the group of colleges has successfully enabled effective learning at home with minimal academic disruptions.
For Pakistan, the Covid-19 challenge may have subsided but the pandemic is still far from over and continues to affect our lives in many ways. Therefore, the PGC is helping its students and staff understand that it is the civic duty of every citizen to follow the SOPs in the fight against the virus.
