“We have been enhancing the existing capabilities of the health facilities in the Hazara division and gave away over 11,000 PCR kits to Ayub Medical Complex,” Sahibzada Jawad Alfaizi, the chief executive officer of Saibaan, told reporters here.

He said that a memorandum of understanding was signed by him on behalf of his organisation and Care with AMC’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Alamzeb Swati in the presence of the humanitarian manager of Care Dr Asif Ashraf.

“The AMC has been extending the Covid-19 treatment and other relevant services and testing facilities and this is why such a huge quantity of PCR kits were given to it,” Alfaizi said.
