The efforts to expand the testing labs network in the country have led to their numbers increasing very day. There are as many as 1,087 labs in the country, including 780 labs in the government sector and 307 private labs. These include: 584 real-time RT PCR based testing labs of which 366 are in the government sector and 218 in the private sector; 412 TrueNat based testing labs of which 381 are government-run facilities and 31 in the private sector; and 91 CBNAAT based testing labs: with 33 in the government sector and 58 in the private sector.
Several people-centered measures taken as part of the “Test, Trace, Treat” strategy have removed the impediments for COVID-19 testing. Facilitation of widespread testing by States/UTs has spurred the number of samples tested every day. During the last 24 hours 2,42,383 samples have been tested, pushing the cumulative number of tests to 95,40,132.
