Mobile dispensaries for all Thane wards; Covid Rapid Antigen Test drive launched

MUMBAI, July 14: Thane municipal corporation has launched a massive corona rapid antigen test drive. It has already placed an order for one lakh test kits. An antigen test gives result in 30 minutes. Tests are planned on a large scale in hotspots, containment areas, slum clusters and other suspected areas. There will be four centres.

Maharashtra Cabinet Minister and Thane’s guardian minister Eknath Shinde inaugurated the first antigen testing centre at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hospital in Kalwa on Monday. Two other private hospitals and a covid care facility will also have these antigen testing centres.

During a function held in the TMC headquarters, Shinde also launched a ''Mission Zero'' campaign to contain the outbreak.

“We have to start the treatment of patients as soon as they are tested positive, to break the chain. Those with symptoms, especially, should be given treatment at the earliest. We also need to make sure that the virus is detected on time, for which these mobile dispensaries will prove to be beneficial and help in identifying those with fever and other Covid-19 symptoms,” said Shinde, Thane’s guardian minister.

As part of the mission, nine mobile dispensaries will make the rounds of all the nine wards. The campaign is jointly carried out by TMC, MCHI CREDAI, Indian Jain Association and NGO Desh Apnaye.

Civic commissioner Dr Vipin Sharma said that the situation is not out of control in the city.

There were 333 new cases and seven deaths in the city on Monday, taking the total cases to 12,957 and deaths to 196.
