Online Covid test – coming soon to a screen near you!

Everything is online these days – Meetings, School, Friends, Shopping, Govt, or lack of it, Bills etc. You don’t really need to step out of your house, unless you want to contact and contract Corona. But you still do.

One of the reasons is the RT-PCR test – the one where you wait in line at the hospital for a test and in a separate line for the result. You can’t get the test on online. Doctor’s consultation maybe, but not the test. For a virtual swab of your nose will only discover a dense jungle, and your throat? Well, its best left to your camera and imagination!

The other reason is the Tika – there is no utsav in that unless you step out with a bunch of friends for a Tika followed by a Tikka (read in persian please)!

The RT- PCR test itself involves a swab tour of your nostril. Sometimes it’s a gentle swirl, sometimes a hard twirl around the city of the virus’s dreams….

But what if it’s done online?  All the camera will get to see by way of verification is a jungle – an important jungle that’s yet to be cut down for development. It is what causes the climate change in your body!

The Camera will not be able to see any development there or down under when you open your mouth!  You don’t know what you are going to say in the current circumstances – when you’d like to stay home, stay safe as they tell you on the telephone, but are called in for an RT-PCR test to mingle with the best of the virus mutants, because you have symptoms of a mutant and cant sit mute about them any longer,  or your neighbour has done it, and is asking you – kiya kya?

You lose out either way. All along you’ve been a positive guy, and now everyone wants you to be negative – like “Indiranagar ka Gunda”!

And so you are, thank the Almighty for that for only he can alter the ions.

Of course, there is the lab technician too, who can do that – for a fee.
