COVID-19 Test Lab

Amid surging number of COVID-19 (coronavirus) infections across Pakistan, Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan is quickly setting up cheap and easily accessible testing facilities for coronavirus as part of Alkhidmat Diagnostic Labs Network. The primary purpose behind the establishment of these facilities is to provide immediate relief to the underprivileged segment of society which cannot afford to undergo expensive COVID-19 tests available at private hospital and laboratories. The diagnostic test for coronavirus is available at Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan’s laboratory for just PKR 5,000 as compared to an average market rate of PKR 9,000 for similar diagnosis.
