Contact tracing

If anyone tests positive for coronavirus, the officials are tracking all people who had come in contact with the person in the past. They are also retesting people after a lapse of a week’s time.

An official of GHMC cited an example explaining how results of COVID-19 test of coronavirus patients can be asymptomatic initially. After a senior citizen, resident of Allwyn Colony, Kukatpally succumbed to coronavirus, his driver was initially asymptomatic, however, after a week’s time he was tested positive.
