Amravati MP Navneet Kaur

Mumbai: Amidst clamour for more transparency and professional approach while dealing the Coronavirus Outbreak, Navneet Kaur Rana, a Member of Parliament from Maharashtra's Amravati district and wife of Badnera MLA Ravi Rana, has raised serious questions about the Covid-19 patients in the district.

The young MP went on to the extent of calling District Collector, Civil Surgeon and Amravati District Administration incompetent and unprofessional, and made an open call to save the poor people of the district from them.

Navneet Kaur and her husband Ravi Rana were in quarantine after they came in contact with some people suspected to have been infected by coronavirus disease (Covid-19). Ravi Rana was however hospitalised three days ago after he suffered fever.

She said docros had collected their throat swabs and sent them to AIIMS in New Delhi to check if theyr have contracted Coronavirus.

"24 hours later, the AIIMS doctors told me that our throat swab samples are not correctly taken", Navneet said in a video message.

"It sounded me very strange. The doctors here are taking the throat swab of an MLA and a Member of Parliament and they couldn't take it properly", she said.

"If the local doctors can be so careless while taking the swabs of an MP and MLA, how can we trust that the sampling of poor people of Amravati is done properly", she said.

"Looking at this, it has become very difficult for me to believe on whatever records the district and local administration have provided so far regarding the number of samples taken, number of cases tested positive and number of patients tested negative for the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

Navneet Kaur Rana also said that all Coronavirus positive cases in Amravati district were found only after their deaths.

"Only after few days of their deaths we had been told that they were infected by Covid-19. Not a single living pateint has been tested positive for coronavirus in the whole district so far", she said.

"This is a serious matter and I will be taking up this issue to Maharashtra Chief Minister and Union Health Minister today itself", she said.

"There is an urgent need to have a serious debate on this issue. We are duty bound to save our people from such incompetent doctors and administration", she said.

329 samples found invalid

Meanwhile, talking to ummid.com on phone MP Navneet Kaur Rana said as many as 329 samples sent from Amravati to AIIMS Lab have been found invalid.

"All this is happening because the AIIMS guidelines are not being followed. The AIIMS has given training to all Civil Surgeons of the country. It is the responsibility of the Civil Surgeon to guide the staff working under him", she said.

"I am not against the doctors who are tirelessly working in the government hospitals. I actually salute and appreciate their services. But, I am sorry to say that the Civil Surgeon is not imparting his duties properly. He is playing with people's life", she said.

Questions about the accuracy of Covid-19 data and statistics provided by local health department were first raised in Malegaon. In the textile town in North Maharashtra which reported a number of coronavirus positive cases since April 8, some doctors and private medical practitioners forced into quarantine said they did not have any symptoms of the disease and were declared Covid-19 positive without proper testing.
