Evading Covid -l9 Testing Fuels Transmission Of Omicron : Dr Purohit

It is important that people get tested to break the chain of transmission as avoiding the test and just assuming the presence or absence of COVID infection will lead to carelessness, said Dr Naresh Purohit, Advisor – National Communicable Disease Control Programme.
Raising concerns around the common misconception among the public regarding the virus, Senior Epidemiologist Dr Purohit said that if one just presumes that one is COVID positive without any test, one would not take isolation measures as strictly as it should be taken.
