Speaking on the occasion, she said the purpose of this drive was to detect the deadly Coronavirus in citizens and provide them treatment on time. Early detection of virus helps in early starting of treatment and high recovery rate. Most people do not show up any symptoms despite carrying the virus. This drive will help in identifying such persons, she added.
