There are complaints regarding the delay in the testing of Coronavirus persons with symptoms in Chennai. This issue would not be there anymore.
Autorickshaw service facility has been introduced by GCC or Greater Chennai Corporation and by this people would be ferried from the testing labs to the nearest testing labs and back to their houses. It is now revealed that all COVID suspected cases would be tested easily.
Just 2 days back, this initiative was launched in some zones belonging to GCC and now this auto service has been making its presence felt in the southern parts of Chennai too. It is important to note that the auto drivers would be wearing PPE and to make the driver feel more secure a plastic sheet would soon be fixed between driver and the passenger.
It was brought to light by Mr. Alby John, Regional Deputy Commissioner (south) that in all the divisions across Chennai city fever camps are being conducted. He spoke about how whenever a person shows some symptoms then he or she was asked to take a Coronavirus test. He concluded that these people get the tests done immediately or after a few days.
Zonal officer Adyar, Mr. N. Thirumurugan expressed his thoughts and spoke about how autos have been arranged by GCC to ensure that the case identified is tested without any delay. Point is the auto driver picks the patient from the fever camp and drops him or her at the lab for testing. Later, the driver drops the passenger at their homes.
