Fever clinics in Salt Lake
Fever clinics where one can consult a doctor and get medicines for free will be set up in various places of Salt Lake and adjoining areas such as Teghoria, Kaikhali, Baguiati and Rajarhat, said an official of the Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation.
The civic body decided to set up the clinics following a spike in the number of Covid cases in almost all 41 wards, the official said.
Some of the areas where the spike in positive cases has been maximum include Duttabad (which borders Salt Lake), Kaikhali, Chinar Park and Teghoria. People running a temperature can walk into a clinic and get examined by a doctor.
“If needed, doctors will advise Covid-19 tests and they can head to a testing centre run by us and get tested,” the official said.
The civic body is running two testing centres in Salt Lake and Rajarhat.
