KP lab authorised to conduct pool testing for Covid-19, announces Jhagra

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa health and finance minister Taimur Khan Jhagra said on Friday that the Covid-19 testing laboratory at Khyber Medical University (KMU) is now authorised to conduct pool testing, increasing the province's capacity by three to five times.

"After successfully conducting 27 trials on pool testing, with 100pc congruence, the flagship KP coronavirus testing lab at KMU is now mandated to do pool tests — suited for large groups with low prevalence rates; theoretically increasing capacity to test by 3-5x," he said via a tweet.
