All the diagnostic centres in the district should adhere to the same, reiterated Dayalan and added that all private diagnostic centres which conduct CT-Chest scan must share their data with the district Civil Surgeon and they should not declare any COVID positive or negative report on the basis of CT-Chest scan without confirmation from COVID-19 testing lab.
