Over 10 lakh 90 thousand COVID samples were tested in the country in the last 24 hours. With this, the cumulative testing figure has almost reached an important milestone of 13 crores 60 lakhs.

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. This also leads to a low Fatality Rate.

Higher volumes of testing have also ensured a lower daily positivity rate which continues to remain below 4 percent. The country is undertaking almost 5 times the number of daily tests per million of the population as per the standards prescribed by WHO.

 
Starting from just one testing lab at the National Institute of Virology, Pune, in January this year, the country today has two thousand 145 labs for testing Covid samples which includes one thousand 169 government and 976 private labs.
