Covid-19: Petition seeks quick disposal of test results

A Supreme Court lawyer yesterday filed a writ petition with the High Court seeking its directive on the health secretary and director general of the Directorate General of Health Services to take necessary steps so that reports of Covid-19 tests are handed to patients quickly.

Advocate Moniruzzaman Lincon submitted it as public interest litigation through email to the HC, saying most Covid-19 test reports are being provided seven to 10  days after collection of samples.

Coronavirus-positive patients showing no symptoms mix with others freely, and can affect them, he said in the petition.

Moniruzzaman told The Daily Star that the HC may hold hearing on the writ petition today.
