Covid-19: RT-PCR test must for Kumbh returnees in Gujarat

Apr 17, 2021 18:25 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said on Saturday that people returning to Gujarat after attending the Kumbh Mela in Haridwar will have to undergo an RT-PCR test before they are allowed to enter their respective cities and villages. 

The CM said collectors of all districts in Gujarat have been directed to keep a watch on the Kumbh Mela returnees and enforce a security checking to prevent their entry in their hometowns without undergoing an RT-PCR test.

The ongoing Kumbh, which has seen lakhs of people from different parts of the country and seers attending the event in large numbers, has drawn flak from various quarters as the number of Covid-19 cases has zoomed at a rapid pace in the past few weeks. The event has also reported the coronavirus cases in large numbers.
