KEMU’s new PCR machine unused for the past 6 months!

Young Doctors Association in its on going campaign to malign the administrator of King Edward Medical College (KEMU) has alleged that a PCR machine worth millions of Rupees was installed in the Pathology Department KEMU on January 23 and has not been used once till date.
A joint statement issued by YDA, said that “thousands of Hepatitis patients have been forced to go to private laboratories to get their test done despite the availability of machine at the pathology laboratory of KEMU. The machine was inaugurated by Hamza Shahbaz Sharif two and a half years ago. The incompetent administration of KEMU has not even bothered to get the machine operative for test of Hepatitis patients, despite the fact that every 10th individuals is Hepatitis B or C positive.” These views were expressed by YDA office bearers Dr Rana Sohail, Dr Salman Kazmi, Dr Talha Sherwani, Dr Ghulam Qasim, Dr Murtaza Bloch, Dr Muhammad Khawar Khan, Dr Shahid Dreshik, Dr Waqas Gondal, Dr Khuda Bukhsh, Dr Asim, Dr Shams, Dr Muhammad Azhar and Dr Muhammad Amjad who have demanded of the Chief Minister of the Punjab to direct the Vice Chancellor KEMU to start the free of cost test of Hepatitis on this machine and purchase the kits for this so that the poor patients don’t have to go to private laboratories for the tests.
