Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses across the globe have been affected. Authorities across the world are trying to control the situation and also finding ways to put a stop to the ongoing pandemic. At present, our Government has eased up the lockdown slightly but seeing the rising case day-by-day, it has imposed certain rules and regulations that need to be followed if someone is heading out.
According to a recent report by ET Auto, the Andhra Pradesh government has deployed 52 new buses to the fleet for collecting the testing samples across all high-risk areas in the state. Earlier there were 50 busses deployed, but now with the addition, the new fleet comprises a total of 102 buses.
These busses will be travelling to various districts, collecting samples from across 95 locations. The Intelligent Monitoring Analysis Services Quarantine (iMASQ) system will be providing a contactless digitised swab sample collection system in all the containment zones. Health Commissioner, Katamaneni Bhaskar also mentioned about the new fleet and stated that these special buses will only be used for mass testing purposes.
He also mentioned that the vehicle will be surveying 10 to 12 people at the same time so that social distancing is maintained. Each bus has 10 counters, with three officials deployed at each counter. The swab samples will be collected and sent to the ICMR laboratories for further testing. Moreover, each patient whose samples have been collected, they are either directed to visit the hospital or home quarantine themselves for 14 days.
Apart from the modified buses fleet, the state government will be recruiting more medical professionals on the frontline. The Health Commissioner mentioned that a total number of 9,700 medical staff will be hired to fight the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Thoughts About The Modified Bus Fleet Deployed For COVID-19 Testing
As we mentioned earlier, the Government of Andhra Pradesh is doing its best so that the spread of the Coronavirus can become negligible. With the help of these modified fleet busses, the chances of people getting affected will be less as the bus will come to the patient's location, which is safer than the patient going out himself.
