In a relief for Delhiites, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has begun free Coronavirus testing facility at six of its metro stations, a report by India Today said on Sunday. This comes as Delhi battles with a surge in its Coronavirus caseload.
The stations where the free testing has begun include Nehru Place, ITO, Badarpur, Chandni Chowk, Inderlok and Netaji Subhash Place. If the report is to be believed, these Coronavirus tests will be rapid antigen tests (RAT) and will be done free of cost.
“This officially kicked off in November. However, it was a gradual development as initially only a few stations like Chandni Chowk, which are usually quite busy, had testing counters,” Moneycontrol.in quoted a DMRC official as saying.
