"It is unfortunate that some people have a habit of fishing in troubled water and considered Covid-19 crisis as their trump cards for political mileage being unmindful of the tears, toils and many sacrifices made by the frontline workers. These canard mongers are more dangerous than the covid-19 virus itself" he added.

The findings of the Expert Team will be submitted to  Minister of  Health & Family Welfare.  After thorough inspection was carried out, the expert team opined that TrueNat quattro machine  Laboratory could be installed.
