QUETTA: Balochistan federal government representative Liaquat Shahwani on Thursday stated that the province’s testing capacity had increased from 80 tests daily to 1,200 checks a day, an exceptional boost provided the absence of health care centers in the denied province.

Highlighting the development the province has actually made in its battle versus the Covid-19 pandemic, Shahwani stated: “Five laboratories have been established across the province and the current testing capacity has increased 1,200 tests a day.”

Detailing the provincial federal government’s 100- day development versus the pandemic, he stated the province had actually chosen to enforce a lockdown on March 17, when 92 cases were reported.

Cases began to boost after the lockdown was unwinded, he stated and added that the federal government did all it might to ensure that requirement operating treatments (SOPs) were being followed.

“Most people resisted getting tested because of the fear of being stigmatised and fear of living in a quarantine centre but once the government allowed patients with less or no symptoms to remain at home, more residents came forward to get tested,” he remembered.
