Covid-19: Test reports being conveyed only on phone

Ludhiana, July 27

People who are getting themselves tested for Covid-19 are not being given any hard copy of the reports by the Health Department. Those who test positive are either sent a message or a call is made on their mobilephones. However, there is no intimation to those who test negative.

A resident of Omaxe Residency said after a few residents of the nearby flats tested positive, a Health Department team took samples of all neigbours on the floor. They noted the contact numbers of the residents.

"A week passed by, but we have got no intimation from the department. When I contacted the security wing of the apartment block, they told me that all persons had tested negative. When I asked them to send me the reports, they said they were conveyed only verbally about it by the department," he said.

Civil Surgeon Dr Rajesh Bagga said the status of the report was conveyed to the people on their mobilephones as it was not possible to deliver reports personally. — TNS
