Two mobile testing programmes were carried out at Dimthanlong Ward No III and Chingkhiulong Ward No V on Wednesday.
Chairman of Covid task force Kangpokpi Haolet Khongsai said that so far around 500 individuals have already been tested under the initiative of CTF Kangpokpi.
CM Biren said house-to-house testing is being actively considered in vulnerable areas and containment zones.
“Testing negative in just one day might be human error during sample collection as there is a chance of getting negative if the quantity of nasal swab collected is not adequate.”
There are several cases of people hiding their travel history or Covid status or other antecedents. It is not surprising in the case of ordinary people who for fear of being stigmatised or because of some criminal intention hide their travel history or Covid status or even suspicion of one’s status, although it is a crime.
