Medical administrative officers in hospitals and other institutions which come under the purview of the Health Ministry, have been advised to obtain permission of the Ministry Secretary prior to making public statements on anything other than technical matters, the Health Ministry said today.

He said all medical administrative officers had been notified and emphasized that action would be taken against the officials who failed to follow the directives.

    Why is the Health Minister so afraid of reviling the information to the public. He may have some connections with the allegations done by Dr. Shafi.
