COVID patients’ kin will be tested at doorstep: Minister

The Tamil Nadu government has taken steps to identify those with coronavirus by going door-to-door to contain the spread of the infection in the district, state Municipal Administration Minister, S P Velumani said Thursday.

For this purpose, 20 mobile testing vehicles would be used. The vehicles would have a lab technician, a nurse and a health worker, he said during a review meeting of COVID-19 situation with senior officials of various departments here.

He said the ambulances would go to houses of those who had already tested COVID-19 positive, and test their family members and others in contact.

The Minister further said those testing positive would be sent for treatment. This would help control the spread, he said. – PTI
