More than 11 lakh COVID-19 tests done on average every day in past six weeks: Govt

Health Ministry has said that Comprehensive and high testing is pivotal in the strategy to curb the chain of transmission of Covid 19. In a series of tweets, the Ministry said, from few tests in January this year, India has scaled a high of more than 12 crore total tests in November.
With daily capacity of 15 lakh tests, more than 11 lakh tests were done on an average every day in the past six weeks. The Ministry said, such comprehensive testing leads to early identification, quick isolation, timely hospitalisation and effective treatment of COVID19 cases. It said, these eventually result in decreased Positivity Rate and low Fatality Rate.
