Puducherry Starts Door-to-Door COVID Sample Collections: Health Minister
On September 5, Puducherry Health Minister Malladi Krishna Rao announced that the state would start door-to-door COVID sample collections to have a control over the infection. The idea came since they thought people would fear the disease and hesitate to get tested at camps. He said, “Such a system of testing would help identify the actual number of patients". Reportedly, the testing will be conducted across the union territory including Karaikal, Mahe and Yenam.
