A two-member fact-finding panel comprising epidemiologist Dr. Syed Faisal Mahmood and Dr. Salma Muhammad Abbas will review the prescribed biosecure protocols and bylaws.
Dr. Syed Faisal Mehmood is working as a Section Head and Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Aga Khan University.
Dr. Salma Muhammad Abbas is working as a Consultant for Infectious Diseases and General Medicine at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Center, Lahore. The panel will submit its recommendations and suggestions to PCB chairman Ehsan Mani by March 31.
This independent panel will be responsible for conducting a comprehensive and detailed review of the Corona SOPs developed for PSL 6, identifying any deficiencies, and making recommendations that this biosecure environment is free of Corona. Why couldn’t he stay?
Ehsan Mani says the PCB is very serious about the health and safety of its players, sports staff, and its match officials. We have demonstrated this in the home series against Zimbabwe and South Africa and in the recent 9 tournaments of the domestic season.
He said the sole purpose of appointing this independent panel of two experts is to conduct an honest, constructive, and purposeful review. “It will liaise with all relevant stakeholders, including the independent panel event and hotel staff, medical and compliance officers, team players, and management, so that we can better understand how these cases come to light,” he added. This independent panel will then present its recommendations to us.
