As part of the survey, 26 special teams formed by the RMC started collecting samples of people from various age groups in 50 clusters of the city on Monday. The civic body targets to collect 1,800 samples of randomly selected people as part of the survey over the next week, Rajkot Municipal Commissioner Amit Arora said.
These clusters have been based on areas of polio booths, officers said.
Rajkot city has so far recorded 42,800 Covid-19 cases and the district, including RMC and Rajkot rural, has so far recorded 723 deaths due to the disease.
