Bengaluru’s civic body BBMP on Monday cancelled the Karnataka Private Medical Establishments (KPME) registration of Medall Laboratory
, Aarthi Scans & Labs, RV Metropolis laboratory
and BGS Global labs
for delaying uploading of Covid-19 test results on the ICMR
portal causing delay in the generation of BU codes.
The BU numbers are necessary for patients to seek hospital beds, and it was widely reported that the labs were taking a few days to provide BU numbers to persons who gave their swabs.
The civic body also referred the issue to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) recommending it to revoke the approval for Covid testing at these labs.
The BBMP has also issued a show-cause notice to these labs, according to a tweet from BBMP chief commissioner Gaurav Gupta.
