Man dead years ago ‘tests’ Covid negative in Lucknow

In gross negligence, the health department recently issued Covid-19 negative reports of three persons of a family — two of whom are in the US while one died years ago. The anomaly was detected when these reports were uploaded on the district Covid portal. Ashray Jaiswal, a bank executive, tested Covid positive on October 6. Two days later, a contact tracing team came to his rented home in Rajajipuram to collect the samples of his wife and two children for tests. The team gave Ashray a link of the portal where he could login to see the test results. When Ashray opened the portal the next day, he was shocked to see reports of five other persons along with his family members with the same residential address. “The reports of my wife and children stated that they were tested through the RT-PCR method. While my son tested positive, wife and daughter came negative. However, of five other names, three were of my landlord’s family — two of the couple who own the house and are currently in the US while third report was of the landlord’s father who passed away a few years ago. The remaining two persons were not known to me,” he said.
