Conduct more Covid-19 tests in NCR: Shah tells Yogi, Khattar

Jul 02, 2020 23:29 IST

Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday emphasised on carrying out more Covid-19 tests in the NCR cities of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana using Rapid Antigen kits. He suggested that focus should be on reducing mortality rate by ensuring early hospitalisation of patients at a high-level meeting chaired by him and attended by the chief ministers of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi and Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan. He said the adoption of more testing via Rapid Antigen Test Kits will help reduce infection transmission rate below 10 per cent as suggested by the World Health Organization. Shah said nearly 90 per cent of screening is possible through these kits.
