VIJAYAWADA:  A total of 11,320 people arrived by trains in Krishna district from May 14 to June 9. Of them, only five have tested positive so far. Test results of 3,584 people are still awaited.  Out of the five who tested positive, four came from Delhi and one from Mumbai.

When asked about the delay in test results, a district official said, “It is not that we do not have kits or lab technicians to conduct the tests. It needs at least 24 hours to get a test result. Also, there are several priority cases, which need to be tested.
