From a slum in a Ultadanga locality to a high-rise in a Ballygunge neighbourhood, the laboratory technicians and health workers from the Kolkata Municipal Corporation have been running across the city to get Covid-prime contacts and suspects tested.

According to a KMC health department official, the swab test that the civic body is conducting in association with the state government hospitals, including SSKM, has become so demanding, particularly in the Covid-sensitive areas across the city that the civic laboratory technicians are collecting 450-500 samples a day and sending them to SSKM for testing.

The steep rise in Covid-positive cases has necessitated organizing camps for collection of swab, particularly in the worst affected Covid containment zones, said a KMC health department official. Besides, the KMC team of technicians are also visiting high-rises for collection of swab from the prime contacts of Covid-positive patients.
