Srinagar: To identify Covid-19 suspects, the Srinagar administration here on Monday started a door-to-door health survey. It will also record people with travel history.
Teams, comprising doctors, para-medics, healthcare workers and social welfare staff, are taking part in the survey to record health status of every member of a family.
“House-to-house health survey/audit under progress in #Srinagar. Indispensable for better planning & response. Sporadic reports of non-cooperation. Request Citizens to pl help visiting teams for accurate health data. It’s a collective fight against Covid-19.” Srinagar DC Shahid Choudhary tweeted.
Kashmir has seen spike in number of Covid-19 cases after increase in number of tests in April. The testing has been ramped up to 1,000 a day.
The government aims to use the survey data to prepare a response system.
