Chitra Padmanabhan said that teams were seen at work in Mandavelipakkam on Saturday morning.
She put out a post saying – A minimum of 40 samples were taken. Around 3-4 ml of blood was drawn from each participant. General details like name,sex, age etc were noted. ELISA tests would be done on the samples ..and a ‘positive’ result would be intimated to the participants.
Chitra says this info was provided by Sathish and Preethi, her neighbours.
Besides detecting the virus, a sero survey will also help find out if a person has recovered from the infection without being aware of it. This is a ICMR directed survey.
