The Delhi government May 10, 2020 issued a new protocol to check whether deaths from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) were being under-reported. According to the state administration:
It has been observed that both public and private hospitals are not reporting the death of positive cases occurring in their hospitals in regular and timely manner. Despite repeated reminders, the death summaries of the deceased patients are not being submitted to the death audit committee resulting in incorrect / delayed reports being submitted.
This kit was validated at 2 sites in Mumbai & has high sensitivity & accuracy. Besides,it has the advantage of testing 90 samples together in a single run of 2.5 hours, so that healthcare professionals can proceed quickly with necessary next steps on their patients’ triage paths. pic.twitter.com/J0uKCUPa5h— Dr Harsh Vardhan (@drharshvardhan) May 10, 2020
