Abohar hospital to increase testing capacity

After reviewing the situation arising out of rapid resurgence of Covid in Abohar, DC Arvind Pal Singh Sandhu today appointed MC Commissioner-cum-ADC Abhijeet Kaplish as the chief nodal officer for the Abohar sub-division. Covid test positivity rate in the area has exceeded 16 per cent in the last few days.

The Health Department will deploy additional staff at the Sub-Divisional Civil Hospital here to increase Covid testing from 200 to 400 on Tuesday. Fifty more “Fateh kits” were received today. The waiting list stands at 150 again due to the fresh cases. It takes about five days to provide a test report as of now.

To prevent contact infections, officials decided that only Covid tests will be conducted at the isolation ward in the hospital now and the vaccination facility has been shifted to three schools located in different areas.
