Guwahati:

Nagaland Government has sent nine hundred and seventy-eight samples for Covid-19 testing, out of which nine hundred and forty-eight samples have tested negative so far. The results of thirty samples are awaited. Twenty-six samples have been tested by Truenat and all have tested negative.

In regards to screenings, the state administration has so far screened a total of 2,531 persons. The number of screenings done per district are as follows:

Dimapur: 601

Kiphire: 36

Kohima: 639

Longleng: 72

Mokokchung: 642

Mon: 37

Peren: 87

Phek: 23

Tuensang: 217

Wokha: 64

Zunheboto: 113

It may be mentioned here that, the lone corona patient from Nagaland, a Dimapur trader, was admitted to the Guwahati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on April 12 after he tested positive.

The patient was released from the GMCH earlier this month after he recovered from the dreaded virus. However, the records kept by the state administration make no mention of the patient.

For as long as he was admitted in the hospital, neither state seemed eager to claim responsibility of the patient.

Central Government records, meanwhile, have added the Nagaland patient to the tally of Assam state, which has seen a major uptick in the number of cases in the recent past (the state Government tally sits at 141).
