Bahria Town lab sealed for hiding coornavirus cases

Punjab health authorities have sealed a PCR diagnostic laboratory in Bahria Town Phase 8 in Rawalpindi for hiding a number of positive coronavirus cases. The lab was established illegally without approval of the Punjab Healthcare Commission and was found to be violating the standard operational procedures (SOPs) announced by the provincial government.

Renowned news anchor, Nadeem Malik, claimed that the said laboratory in Bahria Town phase 8 hospital, had concealed up to 45 to 50 Covid-19 positive cases. This is similar to plotting the local transmission of the virus. As per health experts, a single coronavirus patient can communicate the virus to about 35 to 40 people in no time, Malik stated.
