Self-testing cases have increased significantly in Mumbai after the cases of the new variant of Corona, Omicron, increased. Till now very few people give information about this test to BMC. It will now be difficult to hide the information of self-testing, as the BMC issued guidelines on Friday regarding rapid antigen test and home test. Under this, BMC has fixed the responsibility of manufacturers, distributors, medical stores, dispensaries and chemists – all of them for rapid antigen test and home test kits. All these will have to provide information to BMC and FDA through e-mail every day by 6 pm. Later BMC will upload the complete information on the website of ICMR.
BMC’s special team will keep an eye on the data. The team of Medical Health Officer has been given the responsibility of taking action against those who violate the rule. Based on this, the FDA commissioner will monitor the distribution and all medical stores, chemists and dispensaries in Mumbai. All the chemists will bill the kit buyers and keep their records.

Very few people gave information about the report
BMC had said recently that 3 lakh people have done self-testing in Mumbai. Of them, only 98,957 people uploaded the report on the app and provided this information to the BMC. More than two lakh people did not tell BMC whether their report was positive or negative. Only after that the BMC had talked about issuing guidelines in this regard.
