corona test: The Punjab Health Commission (PHC) on Thursday banned corona virus testing at the Mughal Diagnostic and Research Center because it did not apply the required standards.
A special inspection from the Mughal Center in Johar City was carried out and the process for the test was found not to meet the standards. Previously, the National Institute of Health had visited the place as well.
Meanwhile, the PHC team sealed 20 shamanistic outlets in four cities after inspecting 150 treatment centers. In Sheikhupura, in addition to closing the business of six shamans, the New Standard Lab was also sealed because it did not get PHC registration or hire qualified staff.
In other cities, the businesses of seven backstreet shamans in Lahore, four in Mattresses and three in Chiniot are locked. Bilal Clinic, Shaheen Clinic, Siraj Hadi Jorr, Jabroo Pehalwan, Tahir Shifakhana, Abdullah Dawakhana and Abu Bakar Dental Clinic are closed in the City.
