Rural Realities Tamil Nadu Practitioners Experiences in Tackling the Second Wave in Indian Villages

Dr. Samuel Thomas, Chief Operating Officer (COO), SEESHA NGO, Chennai observed that in certain places, both vaccination and COVID testing happens close by. An appointment system needs to be implemented and the sites must be separated to prevent the situation of super spreading.

He also recommended that the Rapid antigen test could be used in the first stage in the place of RTPCR, the only test recommended in the state, due to delay in announcing results. Moreover, “there should not be any discrimination between the private and public. Allocation of resources should be also done for private hospitals and NGOs who are willing to help”, he said.
