Over seven lakh 64 thousand COVID samples were tested in the country in last 24 hours. The Central Government and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) have scaled up the testing infrastructure in a calibrated manner. India’s testing capacity has touched 15 lakh per day ensuring easily accessible COVID-19 tests for all.
Health Ministry has said that very high levels of testing has led to early identification, prompt isolation and effective treatment of COVID-19 cases.
Starting from just one testing lab at National Institute of Virology, Pune, in January last year, the country today has two thousand 344 labs for testing COVID samples which include one thousand 207 government and one thousand 137 private labs.
