A medical officer of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), who is an MBBS doctor and also in charge of Urban Primary Health Centre (UPHC), has reportedly alleged that staff issued negative reports of Covid-19 to some people who were not tested. A major flaw which has come to fore is that the civic body does not have a count or cross-check of result sheets at its 53 testing centres.
The civic body had started six testing centres from the beginning of August. Later, Rapid Antigen Test and collection of samples for RT-PCR was started at NMC’s 47 UPHCs, diagnostic centres and dispensaries. Hundreds of people benefited from these centres as testing was done free of cost and without any hassles.
