GOA: The distribution of Covid-19 kits for asymptomatic patients opting for home isolation will begin from Tuesday. Three weeks ago, health minister Vishwajit Rane had announced that the kits would be given within a week through the primary health centres. “We will start distribution from Tuesday,” said dean of the Goa Medical College (GMC), Dr S M Bandekar, who is also a member of the purchase committee that cleared the proposal.
A week ago, a senior official of the health services said that the distribution of kits was delayed was because they had to go through various processes before an order could be placed and that the proposal had to be cleared by the purchase committee. The kits will contain disposal masks, a N-95 mask, pulse oximeter, digital thermometer, and medicines, including vitamins.
