As the 10-day festival of Ganesh Chaturthi came to an end on Sunday, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) made RT-PCR testing of 8500 officials mandatory.
Out of the 8500 police personnel, more than 3,830 cops have undergone the COVID test.
The remaining cops would undergo the same test in the coming days. So far, none have tested positive. Commissioner of Police Amitesh Kumar told Nation Next, “Sometime back, several cops had tested positive after returning from Pune. They all were vaccinated and were asymptomatic. This time, we ensured everyone gets tested. Also, timely testing would ensure even citizens don't contract COVID-19."
