Bhubaneswar, July 7 (LocalWire): The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has now planned to roll out the rapid antibody serological test to scale up the Coronavirus testing.
BMC Commissioner Prem Choudhury said that it has been preparing micro plans to roll this plan.
The official said that it might start by the end of this week but the final dates are yet to be finalized.
“These could be used to test close to 2000-2500 samples per day.
We are working out on the micro plans to how and where to do the tests.
We have collaborated with ICMR for the testing,” Choudhury said.
The BMC earlier also conducted the rapid antibody sample testing after receiving the kits from ICMR but the whole process was halted due to faulty kits which reported variations in their reporting.
