KARACHI: Sindh Heal­­­­­­t­h­care Commission (SHCC) on Tuesday has started crackdown across the province against quacks offering fake testing facility for coronavirus patients.

Due to the recent outbreak of virus in Pakistan, quacks have become active in the province offering fake test for coronavirus. Upon information SHCC teams started field operation in Sindh for sealing clinics with fake testing facility.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) SHCC Dr Minhaj Qidwai urged public not to fall prey to such false claims of quacks and only contact facilities which are designated by the Sindh health department for virus testing.
