8,000 Covid-19 tests conducted in last 24 hour: Govt

Apr 03, 2020 23:53 IST

Amid concerns over the number of Covid-19 tests India is conducting, the health ministry in its daily briefing said that so far 66,000 tests have been conducted. The ministry said 8,000 tests were done in the last 24 hours, which is the highest in a single day. So far India's testing numbers is low compared to many other countries including South Korea, the US and United Kingdom. The government's efforts to scale it up by allowing 51 private labs to do the test hit a roadblock due to limited availability of kits for the RT-PCR tests.
