With an alarming number of more than 104 cases being tested positive for coronavirus in Sindh, the Sindh government is doing everything it can, in it’s capacity, to help contain and fight the virus.
Seeing a ton of things actually being thoroughly implemented left the citizens surprised and the internet is lauding the government for their tireless efforts, starting with the biggest isolation facility in Sukkur!

Lawyer and activist Jibran Nasir too lauded the Sindh government for their thorough check and balance:
I reached Pakistan today after a week in US. Went through three airports, multiple train and subway stations, despite the big Corona scare on US media there was no screening by US authorities anywhere. Landed back in Karachi to find a thorough system in place. Kudos #SindhGovt

The government also installed health desks at airports to scan the patients:
Health Department Sindh is doing commendable job to control #CoronaVirusPakistan.

Health care staff at the airport was well taken care of:
This is NOT New York's John F Kennedy Airport, nor Paris's Charles De Gaulle.

It has been the wisest for sure:
The Sindh Govt appears to have outsmarted all provinces and even the centre in its fight against Coronavirus.
— Ansar Abbasi (@AnsarAAbbasi) March 14, 2020
And while many were appreciating the government, some had a different opinion:
There is no doubt that Sindh government’s respond to coronavirus has been great, CM Sindh has been proactive rather than reactive but that doesn’t absolve PPP of poor governance for last 11+ years, don’t use corona as an excuse for political point scoring. https://t.co/wwlqKfgPBE
