In an utterly unethical and unresponsible behavior, private testing labs send 35 people in COVID-19 ward based on false reports. The incident has come to light from Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Buddh Nagar aka Noida. Noida administration has sent notices to these labs for their act.
Around 35 people from the area had complained of mild fever, cough, and cold. As per the advice of the doctor, they took Coronavirus tests in these labs. The labs presenting a false report showed them positive and they were admitted to government isolation facilities. The fact was revealed when the samples of the 35 people were retested.
National Institute of Virology where the samples were sent for retesting found them negative. Post the confirmation the 35 persons have been discharged from the corona ward where they spent 3 days. However, a watch is been kept on them as they may have contacted the virus from their stay in the ward.
