From May 17 to 21, the Kamrup Metropolitan is holding door-to-door Covid-19 training camps under the auspices of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation.
According to the National Health Mission (NHM), the Kamrup (M) district announced that as of May 20, 13941 residents had been screened for COVID-19, 1197 people had been diagnosed with the virus, and the campaign would continue.
In this regard, the Kamrup (M) government, in collaboration with the District Health Society, conducted a meeting and appealed to the general public to promote the door-to-door Covid-19 testing drive.
As the state health department has agreed not to provide COVID home isolation to citizens over the age of 50, officials are being urged to raise consciousness among the public and encourage those patients to seek treatment in hospitals.
The Covid-19 research camps will be conducted in Housing Societies/Offices (Government, Semi-Government, and Private)/Media houses/Firms/NGOs/Residential complexes/Shopping malls, and other locations under the control of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation in collaboration with the District Administration, Kamrup Metropolitan.
Earlier on 12 May, Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma met with state Health Minister Keshab Mahanta and other health officials and decided to conduct house-to-house COVID testing beginning on 17 May, focusing on containment zones as well as susceptible areas such as markets, depots, and parking lots, among others. The district administration of Kamrup Metro would ensure that necessary arrangements are made.
