New Delhi: The AAP on Wednesday claimed that the Centre-run RML Hospital was giving out erroneous COVID-19 test results and violating government norms of submitting the same within 48 hours.
No immediate reaction was available from the hospital.
Addressing a press conference here, AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha said the Delhi government re-tested 30 samples from Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital which were declared COVID-19 positive. He said 12 of these samples were found to be negative and the result of two samples was inconclusive.
“As per the protocol and to maintain the certainty of the tests, the Delhi government checks the test results of the hospitals by re-testing some samples time and again. Recently, the Delhi government took 30 samples from RML Hospital which were declared to be positive (by the hospital) and sent for re-testing.
You will be surprised to know that the result of 12 samples out of the 30 came negative and results for two samples were inconclusive,” he said.
