DHARWAD: The members of the Hubballi unit of the Bharatiya Jain Sanghatan have given Deputy Commissioner Nitish Patil five mini buses for the rapid antigen test work.
The members handed over the vehicles at the deputy commissioner’s office on Saturday morning, with the slogan ‘Mission Zero Zero Covid Case’.
Patil, who flagged off the vehicles, said that such cooperation by NGOs and other associations to help fight Covid is appreciable. “The Health Department has been conducting the rapid antigen tests sending its people from house to house. The mini buses will be used to shift a person who tests positive to a hospital,” he explained.
Dr Yashwanth Madinkar, district health and family welfare officer; Dr Sujatha Hasavimath, district surveillance officer; Vinod Jain, president of the Hubballi unit of the Bharatiya Jain Sanghatane; Gautham Bafna, national secretary of the Sanghatan; and Mukhesh Bagarecha, Mukhesh Hingar, Bharat Patwari, Bharat Jain, Vishal Jain, Mahavir Kothari and Prakash Jain, office-bearers of the Sanghatan, were among those present on the occasion.
