When the Covid-19 pandemic was spreading fast, it was not only spreading the disease but also a panic in the public. Front line workers started giving services in health facilities and other areas.
Away from the media limelight, however, a group of women in Swat valley have been at work, quietly but effectively, to help control the spread of Covid-19 in their communities.
Even before the virus had entered Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and was still enveloping other parts of the world, the lady health workers (LHWs) in Swat — where 73 cases have been confirmed as of April 16 — started visiting each and every house in their vicinity to collect the data of expatriates returning from abroad.
