BARCELONA: As the coronavirus scenario continues to degrade in Spain, Pakistani taxi drivers in Barcelona– the cosmopolitan capital of the sixth-largest European economy — have actually melted the hearts of Spaniards by supplying free transport services to the medical personnel, designated with dealing with COVID-19 clients.

According to Mohammad Shahbaz Khatana, a cab driver in Barcelona, “We are providing doctors, who are working to treat the virus patients, with free rides to their workplaces and back home.”

” At first, it was simply me and a couple of other [Pakistani] cabbies,” he stated, including: “But soon, we were joined by other drivers in the vicinity, and, now, the number has reached to 150 in just a few days.”

“The taxi drivers are taking all the precautionary measures necessary to avoid the disease.”

According to Khatana, their taxi association has actually supplied the drivers’ contact directory to the regional health administration so that they can call taxis in when required.
