Haryana ups RT-PCR tests for ILI, SARI cases amid rise in Covid cases

Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Wednesday said RT-PCR tests will be conducted for Influenza-like Illnesses and Severe Acute Respiratory Infections despite there being no COVID-19 cases in the state at present.

Vij was participating in a meeting through videoconferencing on the measures in response to new COVID-19 infections across the country and reports of more than 20 cases of the JN.1 sub-variant being detected in some parts, according to an official statement.

The meeting was chaired by Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya.

Vij "emphasised the necessity for mandatory RT-PCR tests for ILI (Influenza-like Illnesses) and SARI (Severe Acute Respiratory Infections) cases, proposing that COVID-19 should be declared a notifiable disease", the statement said.

"This would require private hospitals to inform the chief medical officer and government hospitals of any cases," he said.
