Centre, ICMR scale up Covid testing infrastructure to ensure easily accessible tests for all

@ICMRDELHI
Nearly 11 lakh COVID samples were tested in the country in last 24 hours. With this, the cumulative testing figure has reached nearly 13 crore 37 lakh mark.
 
The Central Government and ICMR have scaled up the testing infrastructure in a calibrated manner.
 
India's testing capacity has touched 15 lakh per day ensuring easily accessible COVID19 tests for all.
 
Health Ministry has said that very high levels of testing lead to early identification, prompt isolation and effective treatment of COVID-19 cases. It said, this also leads to low Fatality Rate.
 
Starting from just one testing lab at National Institute of Virology, Pune, in January this year, the country today has two thousand 134 labs for testing Covid samples which includes one thousand 166 government and 968 private labs.
