Now the country is producing masks including N95 masks, gloves, goggles or face shields, gowns, shoes cover and bed sheets for their hospitals, said Fawad Chaudhry.

Pakistan also developed a coronavirus diagnostic kit, which has been approved by the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan, he added

We are importing the kits from China at the moment but when the commercial production of our kits begins, we will not have to import,” Chaudhry said

The kits developed by our experts are better than the imported kits, and have over 90% accuracy.
