Hashmanis Group of Hospitals introduces COVID variant detection system

Karachi: From a modest beginning in 1981, Hashmanis Group of Hospitals (HGH) has now grown into the best Eye Care hospital of Pakistan. After enhancing its General Hospital services to obtain ISO 9001 certification, HGH established a well-equipped laboratory which provides a wide range of pathological tests.

When COVID pandemic hit the world, HGH was one of the first private hospitals in Pakistan to offer all services for COVID ranging from serology and COVID PCR tests to treatment of COVID patients in the specialized isolated wards.

We are proud to announce that continuing its precedence of being leaders, HGH has introduced the COVID Variant Detection System through which Hashmanis Laboratory can now provide information of the COVID virus variant (Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta) for COVID positive patients that undergo the PCR test. The knowledge of COVID virus variant is very helpful for the physician to decide the course of management. It is also helpful for vaccinated people who get this infection to anticipate the severity and pattern of their disease. The process to get tested is like that of getting a standard PCR test and this test is available at over 20 Hashmanis Hospital locations across Pakistan.
