New Delhi : Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday appealed to the citizens to raise their voice for "testing" more people to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
Priyanka tweeted in Hindi and said, "To stop the spread of the coronovirus, the only way is to test more people so that the infected can be treated."
"Test more people, treat more people should be mantra today, I request you to raise your voice for more testing."
कोरोना वाइरस के संक्रमण को रोकने का एकमात्र रास्ता ज्यादा से ज्यादा टेस्टिंग है। तभी हम संक्रमित व्यक्ति का ट्रीटमेंट कर सकते हैं।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) April 6, 2020
ज्यादा से ज्यादा टेस्ट करो, ट्रीट करो-यही हमारा मंत्र होना चाहिए।
आप सबसे मेरी गुज़ारिश है-ज्यादा टेस्टिंग के लिए आवाज उठाइए।#TestMoreSaveIndia pic.twitter.com/r8NoZZV6Xu
Former Union Minister P. Chidambaram also tweeted on Monday demanding extensive testing.
He said: "There is unanimity among epidemiologists, doctors and district-level administrators that the need of the hour is aggressive and extensive testing. Let government begin that effort today."
महामारी विज्ञानियों, डॉक्टरों और जिला-स्तरीय प्रशासकों में एकमत है कि समय की आवश्यकता आक्रामक और व्यापक जांच है। आज से ही सरकार कोशिश शुरू करे।— P. Chidambaram (@PChidambaram_IN) April 6, 2020
He also welcomed the suggestions given by the ICMR on Sunday to test more people: "I welcome ICMR''s new advice to government to do ''rapid antibody tests'' starting in hotspots. According to many doctors, this advice was overdue."
The ICMR on Sunday issued an advisory for carrying out anti-body testing for all symptomatic individuals in coronavirus hotspots in the country.
Amid rising deaths due to coronavirus, the Congress has demanded that more people should be tested to detect the disease and contain the spread of the virus while questioning the government on allowing the export of the kits".
The Congress said on Sunday, "Why has the BJP govt allowed testing kits to be exported to foreign nations for so long?"
The party alleged that this is the ultimate "betrayal" to India, to our brave healthcare workers and to every Indian who will suffer because of the government''s greed and apathy.
