The Ministry of Defence has requested print and electronic media to respect the privacy of coronavirus infected patients.

All print and electronic media have been requested to refrain from taking pictures or videos of their places of living and the scenes when the health authorities check their houses.

It has been practiced by some TV channels to show the events of tracing corona suspects and issuing them health guidance by Public Health Inspectors (PHIs) and Police officials during news telecasts, other news related programs, in news and feature articles in newspapers, the Ministry said.
