COVID-19 Test Reports A Click Away; Odisha Launches Portal
People in Odisha will no longer have to worry about visiting the test centres to get the COVID-19 test report. They can now avail the facility online.
The Odisha Government has launched a Covid Test Report website to help people check their test status online. The initiative has been taken to enable people to know their results earlier which will bring convenience as well as make it faster for people to know the result.
After undergoing Covid-19 tests, RT PCR or Rapid Antigen, people can retrieve their test result – whether it is positive or negative – by just submitting their registered mobile number or SRF ID on the website. They can also download the report for reference.
The test report generated digitally will carry all the details of the person undergoing the test, including the QR code which can be used by any designated agency to verify the authenticity of the report at any time.
“Technology has always been a big bulwark during the fight against the pandemic. Hassle-free provision of information regarding Covid test to people will not only smoothen the process but also give a huge relief to the people during these trying times,” the Chief Minister said while launching the portal. The CM added that Odisha has significantly increased the capacity to conduct RT-PCR testing by setting up test centres across most districts.
