Door-to-door survey in Capital to check people for signs of virus
NEW DELHI: Authorities began gearing up on Wednesday to launch a mammoth screening campaign covering all households in the national capital to check people for signs of Covid-19, drafting in staff from the civic bodies and setting up new control rooms to coordinate measures.
The action plan was detailed in the minutes of a meeting – seen by HT – held by one of the district task forces on Tuesday, and will now likely be the template for the other districts, according to officials who asked not to be named. “There are district-level meetings tomorrow to decide on a strategy,” this person added.
A government official separately said the chief secretary had written to all district magistrates to form teams. “Survey will begin on June 26 and aim is to complete it by July 6,” official said, quoting from communication.
