Similarly, a person named Varun Vats, a resident of Rohini, shared his ordeal on Facebook. He said that they wandered from June 1 to June 4 to investigate Corona. Took the help of the Arogya Setu app, phoned the helpline number of Delhi and Central Government, visited Babasaheb Ambedkar Hospital and Maharaja Agrasen Hospital, contacted private labs but could not investigate. Everywhere, they were told that the corona kit has run out and the investigation is closed for two to three days. Varun's investigation was done on the fifth day but he said that thousands of people are feeling helpless at the moment. There is a need to improve the system. The condition of Uttar Pradesh is worse than this.
