In an important development, the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has made available COVID-19 tests report online. Now citizens who have undergone COVID-19 tests can check their report by clicking a link, available at NMMC’s official website. The civic body also sends links to registered mobile numbers through SMS where citizens can also check the report.
If the citizen tests positive after the COVID test, the concerned person is immediately informed and the further process of isolation as well as contact tracing of the patient begins.
Earlier, when the report is negative, the concerned person was not informed immediately. This caused mental anxiety of persons who took the tests. The municipal commissioner Abhijeet Bangar directed officials to take steps and make the report easily available to the citizens.
In this connection, a special facility has been set up on the website of NMMC www.nmmccovidcare.com. “Citizens can also take the printout of their report,” said a senior civic official from NMMC.
Apart from this, while conducting the COVID test, the citizens receive SMS messages on the registered mobiles. However, citizens can get the SMS again by clicking on the link sent on their mobile number.
The report of any person who has undergone antigen or RT-PCR test at the Covid Testing Center at municipal hospitals, civic health centers as well as APMC Market, Railway Stations will be available online.
