HYDERABAD: With the fear that flood relief camps set up across GHMC limits will erupt as Covid-19 hotspots, the Health Department has made it mandatory to run Covid-19 tests across tall camps. 

At least 30 such camps are being run by the Hyderabad DMHO and three by Rangareddy DMHO in rain-affected areas of Rajendranagar, Chandrayangutta, Chaderghat, Saroornagar, Diksukhnagar, etc. 

The camps will be equipped with prophylaxis drugs to prevent floodwater-related infections. “Each of these camps will have at least one doctor, two nurses and one lab technician,” said the Hyderabad DMHO.
