Ahmedabad Medical Association files PIL over COVID testing in private labs

Ahmedabad Medical Association has filed a PIL against restrictions in COVID-19 tastings in private laboratories.

"In Gujarat, particularly Ahmedabad, pvt doctors in non-COVID hospitals get many patients with COVID-19 symptoms. Gujarat govt has no policy to test who we feel might be infected.

As per ICMR, before any surgery COVID-19 test is compulsory.

But Gujarat govt is taking COVID tests very lightly and why they are doing lesser number of tests, is still not understood by people and doctors," said Dr Vasant Patel, CEO Dhwani Hospital and Ahmedabad Nursing Home Association Executive Committee Member.

"Regarding this (less number of COVID-19 tests) Ahmedabad Medical Assoc has filed a PIL, Ahmedabad Nursing Home Assoc has also joined the PIL and tomorrow it will be heard in the High Court," he further added.
