GOA: The delay in receiving test results is not only burning a hole in the pocket of those returning to the state after having lost jobs abroad, but is also causing them emotional distress. Several have been forced to extend their stay in the paid quarantine while they wait for the results of the Covid teat that they already paid Rs 2,000 for on arrival.
“There’s no proper communication. The hotel would not let me check out until I received the negative confirmatory message. I had to beg influential people to help me. After three days I finally got the doctor on the phone and he confirmed that my report was negative. I received the confirmatory SMS only the next day,” said Shalini.
