The Telangana government has decided to scale up Coronavirus Testing especially in Hyderabad and surrounding 4 districts. Also decided to allow for the first time, testing and treatment in private laboratories and hospitals as per the ICMR guidelines.

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has taken a decision to this effect at a review meeting held in Hyderabad last evening. 50 thousand COVID-19 tests will be held in 30 Assembly constituencies including those in Hyderabad in the next 10 days.
