Spicehealth, a healthcare company by Spicejet has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Uttarakhand to conduct Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) and Rapid Antigen tests for pilgrims travelling to the state for Kumbh Mela festival, one of the world’s largest religious gatherings.
Spicehealth’s mobile lab has been set-up in Haridwar.
In addition, testing facilities are also available across five locations on the Uttarakhand border.
According to the latest guidelines, authorities at Kumbh Mela have made passes mandatory for all pilgrims. These passes will be issued only after the submission of a negative RT-PCR test report, medical certificate, and identification proof.
Avani Singh, CEO, Spicehealth said:
“The Kumbh Mela is one of the world’s largest religious congregations with millions of pilgrims entering the state borders every day. Ensuring the safety of the attendees of the mela is of utmost importance, and we at Spicehealth are proud to assist the Uttarakhand Government in testing and serving those travelling to the holy city of Haridwar.
“We are fully committed to providing a quick, seamless and smooth testing experience through our multiple testing facilities in the State.”
Spicehealth has conducted around a million RT-PCR tests since launching its first mobile lab in Delhi in November 2020. The company operates multiple testing laboratories in Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra, and Delhi’s IGI airport.
