Governor inaugurates Al-Khidmat’s COVID-19 testing facility 1
 Sindh Governor Imran Ismail inaugurated a COVID-19 testing facility at the  Virology and Genetic Lab of the Al-Khidmat Hospital Karachi on Tuesday, and said  NGOs had also done a wonderful job in the upgradation of three Karachi  hospitals, including Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC).

“NGOs are doing a wonderful job in the health sector, and even at public  hospitals of Sindh, major services are being provided by NGOs. For instance, the  Cyber Knife facility at the Jinnah Hospital has been established by NGOs. The  federal government is going to take over three Karachi hospitals and we will  turn them into state-of-the-art health facilities,” he said while inaugurating  the COVID-19 testing facility at the Al-Khidmat Hospital.

Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi chief Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman, Chairman Board of  Governors Al-Khidmat Diagnostic Centre Haroon Qasim, Azfar Ahsan, a  representative from Corporate Pakistan Group, Dr Naila Tariq, the project  director of the Al-Khidmat Diagnostic Centre, Syed Jamshaid Ahmed, Dr Saqib  Ansari and others were also present on the occasion.

Terming the Al-Khidmat an “honest and trustworthy” organisation, the governor  praised it for providing health services to people all over the country.

He maintained that this testing facility in District Central would facilitate  a large number of people in the East and West districts of Karachi. He added  that this facility would facilitate hundreds of families who needed to be tested  for COVID-19 for their jobs and other requirements.

Praising the Corporate Pakistan Group for their donation of Rs30 million for  the establishment of COVID-19 testing facility and diagnostic centre, Ismail  said it was a small amount, but if utilised honestly and properly, this small  amount of money could do wonders, which was evident from the establishment of  the state-of-the-art testing facility in the city by Al-Khidmat.
