‘Don’t want Covid positive cases to remain untraced’: Satyendar Jain

As Covid-19 cases resurge in the national capital, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said that the Kejriwal government was doing ‘aggressive testing’ and the aim was to ensure no case was left untraced.

Jain said the government had sufficient stock of Covid-19 testing kits for 10-15 days, but it was procuring more from the market to meet the target of 40,000 tests per day.

Jain added that the recent increase in number of Covid-19 cases in Delhi was due to various reasons, including patients from outside seeking treatment here, return of migrants who left Delhi during lockdown as well as increased testing.

"Delhi has the highest rate of per million testing in the country.

We are working on the strategy of aggressive contact tracing and testing and Corona will be completely checked if the strategy succeeds.

After doubling the number of tests to 40,000 we will trace and test all the contacts of Covid-19 patients," he said.
