If someone tests positive in your family every other family member who has come in contact must isolate even if he/she tests negative.

First slide

Someone in a family tests positive for covid !

Immediately rest of the family members get tested.

Those members who test negative take it for granted that they are not exposed.

To save themselves from covid they shift to their relative's home.

Mostly elderly and children who test negative are shifted so that they remain safe from covid.

The intention is noble yet absolutely dangerous and potentially catastrophic.

Everyone must understand that those who tested negative could have already gotten infected but are still in their incubation period.

Hence they will test negative inspite of being infected.

They are shifted and thus they infect other families.

The bottom line is that if someone tests positive in your family every other family member who has come in contact must isolate even if he/she tests negative.

The incubation period of covid is variable.

Don't put the other families at risk just because you are worried about your loved ones.
