LUCKNOW: The Covid-19 sero prevalence survey is defined to start in Uttar Pradesh in September 4, nearly 3 weeks before schedule. Additional main secretary, health and family welfare, Amit Mohan Prasad stated two rounds of instruction on September 3 and 1 could precede real sample collection.
“KGMU will moderate the questionnaire that will insure 11 districts such as Kanpur, Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Lucknow and Agra,” he explained. Many countries like Delhi, Punjab and Maharashtra have introduced the results of the sero surveys. “Sample collection will occur between September 6 and 4. As many as 1,080 samples will be collected from every district. This implies 11,080 samples will be collected and hauled to KGMU for analyzing,” Prasad said.
All of CMOs concerned are requested to form 10 teams containing four individuals, headed by a health officer, in every discipline.
The group will search to get Covid-19 clusters wherein they will search to get 24 individuals living in six families across four localities — in rural and urban regions — that could be roped into research.
Public health expert and epidemiologist Dr Vishwajeet Kumar explained:”Understanding that the vast majority of cases are liable to be overlooked in RT-PCR testing, sero-prevalence polls can be a substantial step in the continuing struggle against the outbreak.”
