Increase COVID-19 testing facilities: PCC chief Pritam

Friday, 10 April 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Pritam Singh has hailed the Supreme Court (SC) judgement on free testing of novel Coronavirus. In a statement, he has said that the direction of SC to the Union Government on free COVID-19 test is very good. He said that in view of ever increasing numbers of COVID-19 infected patients in Uttarakhand, there is an urgent need to open more COVID-19 testing facilities in the state. The PCC president opined that the State Government should start an extensive information campaign to inform about these testing centres both in Government and private sector so that tests of suspected patients are done on large scale. It would help in saving precious lives, he said. Singh added that at present the state has very few testing facilities of COVID-19 and under such circumstances the government should act fast and increase COVID-19 testing facilities in the state. The PCC President said that the State Government should give proper relaxation to the farmers from lock down for harvesting the Rabi crops and also release a time table for it. He added that it is necessary that the country does not face any food crisis at this critical time.
