As reported by news agency PTI, a BMC official said that nearly 67 hawkers from near Dadar railway station were administered rapid antigen tests on Monday and at least 7 of them were found positive of COVID-19.
Last week, the civic body announced that a rapid antigen test will be carried out at public places such as markets, shopping malls, bus depots and railway stations among other crowded spots.
