Accelerated increase in lab infrastructure continues to drive the ‘Test Track and Treat’ strategy

More than 1.5 crore COVID samples (1,54,28,170) have been tested, till now. In the last 24 hours 3,52,801 samples have been tested for COVID-19 identification.

This translates to 11179.83 tests per million (TPM) for India, which has seen a steady increase since the adoption of this strategy.

 

The rise in TPM has been achieved with a steady rise in the number of labs (1290 so far), and efforts by the Centre and State/UT governments to facilitate wide-spread testing through an array of options.

The RT-PCR labs are the backbone of the latest testing strategy prescribed by ICMR. The number of labs in the public and private sectors are seeing a progressive enhancement. There are 897 labs in the government sector and 393 private labs. The details are as follows:

•           Real-Time RT PCR based testing labs: 653 (Govt: 399 + Private: 254)

•           TrueNat based testing labs: 530 (Govt: 466 + Private: 64)

•           CBNAAT based testing labs: 107 (Govt: 32 + Private: 75)
