CivSense lauds Pakistan Government, NCOC efforts on anti-Covid Vac Campaign

Urges thorough research, verification into false news regarding Vac
 
ISLAMABAD - May 29, 2021 - PRLog -- CivSense, a Pakistan-based Civic Sense awareness initiative, has lauded the government and NCOC's efforts on a successful anti-Covid vaccine campaign in the country.

In a statement issued in Islamabad today, the Co-founder of the CivSense Dr. Mahwish Sohail said: "Despite constraints and criticism, the efforts of the Government of Pakistan, specifically National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has been timely and effective."

"We have had our teams visit vaccination centers and talked to the visitors regarding arrangements. Of those surveyed, two-third of the citizens have expressed complete satisfaction with the vaccination registration process and arrangements. This is a major achievement although we had limited resources," Dr. Mahwish said.

Dr. Mahwish appreciated the decision of priority vaccination to the educators. "Teachers are the cornerstone to every nation's success. It is heartening to see that as we open our schools, colleges, universities, and other institutions, the government has addressed the need of prioritizing the teachers' safety and health."

She urged all citizens over-19 to get themselves registered by texting their CNIC number to 1166 or visit nims.nadra.gov.pk

"Verify False News"

While rebuking propaganda around the vaccination drive, CivSense co-founder Raza Mumtaz Rao emphasized verification of all news and reports regarding the vaccination. "There is an influx of false reports and statements encircling the global vaccination campaign. This is a major challenge as it creates wrong notions and unwanted apprehensions against the Covid vaccine."

"It all comes down to an individual. It is seen that such material is received and shared via the internet, social networking platforms, and messaging apps. While companies like Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp are doing their best to stop spreading such info, a lot of times we see people sharing such information without verification," Raza said.

He announced: "We are working on a CoVerify platform under CivSense's project - #EhtiyatKeroNa. We will verify and research every single news, report, or material on the matter.``
