COVID-19: Health Dept To Carry House-to-House Tests in Pandu
Assam Health and Family Welfare Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday announced that the health department will carry out house-to-house tests for COVID-19 in Ward No 2 at the Pandu area under Guwahati Municipality.
The health department will carry out the tests from July 7 and targeted to complete 3000 tests in the Ward in two days. The minister in his tweet said, “In a first of its kind initiative on mass testing in Assam, Health Dept shall carry out house-to-house #Covid tests in Ward No 2 ( pandu area) of Guwahati Municipality, starting Tuesday (July 7). We target to complete 3000 tests in the Ward in two days.”
The government has taken the decision of conducting house-to-house tests as the numbers of COVID-19 cases in the Pandu-Maligaon area are increasing rapidly.
5-6 cases are detected on a daily basis in the Ananda Nagar area in Maligaon. However, the other areas have also seen a spike in cases.
