Due to the drastic increase in number of COVID-19 patients in Nagpur and because of some ?technical issues, only rapid antigen tests will be conducted instead of RT-PCR tests at 42 government centers in Nagpur on April 12 and April 14. Also, all test centers will be closed on April 13 due to Gudi Padwa.
Nagpur Municipal Corporation Commissioner Radhakrishnan B informed that positive patients can get treatment immediately only if the results of RT-PCR come back quickly. However, the increase in number of tests has increased the burden on labs at GMCH, IGGMCH, AIIMS and RTMNU. That’s why it’s taking two-three days for the results.
Therefore in order to complete the backlog of these labs and to prevent infection from new potential COVID-19 patients, only rapid antigen tests will be conducted on April 12 and April 14 at all government centres. However, special arrangements will be made for the RT-PCR test of a person who has symptoms but has tested negative in the rapid antigen test.
