ITANAGAR, April 1 - The Arunachal Pradesh Government today sent the sample of a person, who attended the Tablighi Jamaat congregation in Delhi�s Nizamuddin, for COVID-19 test.
Lohit SP Dr Wangdi Thungon said that the district medical authorities have collected the swab of the person and sent it to the Regional Medical Research Centre of the Indian Council of Medical Research at Dibrugarh in Assam on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old person reached Medo in Lohit district on March 18 after attending the Markaz congregation at Nizamuddin on March 15.
�He left Nizamuddin on March 16 and since March 24, he is under home quarantine. He is not showing any signs and symptoms even after 16 days,� Thungon said.
The result of the test is expected by Thursday evening, the SP said, adding if there is any positive signal, those who came in contact with him would be traced.
When asked whether the samples of his family members were also sent for test, Thungon said that since he went to Delhi alone and was under home isolation, the samples of other members of the family were not collected as of yet.
�If his test result is positive, we will perform the test for other family members also,� the SP added. � PTI
