As part of its efforts to curb the spread of the pandemic in the province in which a toll is increasing, the government of Sindh has opened the country’s first coronavirus testing facility in Karachi.
The Testing Center, which is located at the Jahangir Kothari Parade in Clifton, will allow suspected patients, without waiting in long queues, to be checked.
The doctors, paramedical staff, and other personnel deployed at the facility have been provided with all the necessary protective equipment and gear to safeguard against the virus, a press release earlier said.
According to the Sindh government, people who visit the testing station will be registered and given a number, but for the test to be conducted, they should possess a travel history or certain symptoms of the virus.
