Don Bosco Park Circus has made its premises on Darga Road available for a walk-in swab collection centre for RT-PCR tests that are being done in association with Thyrocare and CII Young Indians Kolkata. The facility that is available from 9.30am to 2pm started from May 15.
The aim of this initiative is to provide a low-cost RT-PCR sample collection facility for people. The tests are priced at Rs 500 each while reports will be made available in 48 hours. The collection capacity of the facility is about 100 samples per day on a first-come-first-served basis. To avail of the facility, people need to carry a photocopy of their Aadhaar cards.
The space allotted for the tests will have a separate entrance and be insulated from the remaining part of the school building. Rev Father Bikash Mondal of Don Bosco Park Circus, said that the facility will help them reach out to many people during these trying times. “It pains me when I see that people are losing their lives and they are not getting proper medical facilities. We have come up with the RT-PCR testing facility on the school campus for the needy and we are also planning to place some beds and open a vaccination centre soon,” he said.
