Aga Khan Hospital stops virus tests due to kits shortage

Aga Khan University (AKU) Hospital in Karachi on Saturday ordered a halt to tests of new Covid-19 coronavirus patients due to shortage of kits.

“We are temporarily unable to take any new patients for Covid-19 screening and testing at CHC,” the hospital administration informed through its social media accounts. The administration said after the arrival of the new kits the blood samples will be accepted for testing.

On Friday night, various videos were circulated on social media that showed people’s ire for not being allowed to enter the Aga Khan Hospital as the security guards refused entry of the public.
