Lahore gets 2,000 tests per day BSL-3 lab

Lahore (HRNW) Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar inaugurated the fourth BSL-3 lab of Punjab in Lahore on Monday.

The lab will have a testing capacity of 2,000 tests per day. The chief minister inspected the lab wearing a protective body suit.

The lab had been upgraded to Biological Safety Level 3 last week. The BSL-3 lab is a containment laboratory designed for work with Risk Group 2 and 3 of microorganisms that pose an increased risk of aerosol spread, according to the WHO.

The Punjab government says nine more labs are being upgraded across the province in Bahawalpur, DG Khan, Multan, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Kharian and Gujrat.
