However, it has converted the air-conditioned Indra buses belonging to APSRTC into Mobile Testing Laboratory. The seats have been removed and created special windows through which the samples can be collected from at least 10 people simultaneously.
The government has converted at least 52 such buses into Mobile Testing Labs which were named as ‘Mobile Sanjeevani’ buses. Each district has been allocated 4 buses. The manufacturing of the same is going on in Vijayawada city. The remodelling of at least 21 of such Mobile Sanjeevanis has been completed and sent to different districts till now.
