Chandigarh, October 21

To break the chain of coronavirus transmission, UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore has stated that mobile Covid-19 testing vans should be placed near temples and gurdwaras during the festivities so that devotees can volunteer for such testing.

The Health Department recently started sending mobile testing vans to different locations in the city.

During a review meeting on the pandemic, the Administrator directed the Police Department to be alert during the festival season to ensure that there was no crowding during the celebrations.

Dr Jagat Ram, Director, PGI, said they had 105 Covid patients in Nehru Extension Block, among whom 19 belonged to Chandigarh.

He said they had tested 565 Covid samples, of which 35, belonging to Chandigarh, were found positive.

The acting Director of the GMCH, Sector 32, said they had tested 912 Covid samples and only 40 were found positive.
