To ramp up Covid-19 testing in the city, the Delhi government, along with the district administration, is conducting free covid RT-PCR test camps in Dwarka societies.
On the morning of May 28, RT-PCR tests were conducted for the first time in Sanskriti Apartments in Sector 19 of Dwarka. Till 12:30 pm 80 tests were conducted and reports are yet to come.
According to the government, more tests will be conducted in the coming days, with joint efforts of MLA Gulab Singh and the Delhi government team.
As per directions from Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, these tests are free for the residents of Delhi.
A RT-PCR camp was held today from 9.30 am till 12 noon at Vrindawan Appts in Dwarka's Sector-6, Shri Balaji Appts in the same sector, Sewak Park in Mansaram Park and Samta Enclave in Qutub Vihar area.
Apart from the above-mentioned sites, the camps were also organised at DM Office in Kapashera, Transport Authority (MLO Office) in Dwarka Sector-10 and all government health health dispensaries, except the one in Sector-10.
Monika Miglani, MLA representative in Dwarka and state vice-president of the women wing said, "I think this is a tremendous pro-active initiative to keep the next wave in check and with such continued efforts we can check the spread of infection."
Rajeev Singh, a resident of Sanskriti Apartment said, "The second wave in April - May has overwhelmed the healthcare system, leaving hospitals struggling to cope. Critical drugs and oxygen were in short supply and a lot of people were struggling. This is a great initiative by the government and the SDM to provide free RT-PCR tests at this point."
