Jalna October 14: As many as 12 lakh RTPCR kits required for testing were found to be faulty during the corona crisis in the state. Health Minister Rajesh Tope had pointed the finger at Medical Education Minister Amit Deshmukh’s department, saying the purchase of the kit had nothing to do with the health ministry. Deshmukh has now answered him. Amit Deshmukh has also said that he will meet him and clear up his misunderstanding.
Meanwhile, the state has received RTPCR test kits from a supplier designated by the central government’s ICMR body and these test kits have turned out to be defective. Our medical education department has discovered that these kits are defective and we have stopped the supply of these test kits.
Now ICMR is supplying these test kits and they will supply these kits till further arrangements. Amit Deshmukh said that a committee has been appointed to procure the test kits and action will be taken against the culprits soon.
