Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) has announced that the hospital has resumed usual laboratory blood testing services after an approximate one-week of limited services.

The laboratory services came to a halt on Monday after the laboratory’s Alinity Cl machine assigned for out-patients broke down because of a technical problem.

Despite the halt, from the next day onwards, the hospital issued 300 laboratory tokens per day and continued to provide services.

Other hospitals experienced an influx of patients seeking laboratory services during the one-week period.
