The main reason for concern is that all the people who are testing at home and are being positive are not informing the authorities. For this reason, such infections are not being recorded. According to the Times of India, Suresh Kakani, Additional Commissioner, Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), told a news agency, “No information is being recorded from the home testing kit. This is a screening test, not a confirmation test. We don’t know anyone who is using test kits in this home. Even if they get a positive report, if they do not follow the rules of isolation, they will infect their close acquaintances. ”
