Apr 09, 2020 23:30 IST

The Indian Council of Medical Research on Thursday updated its testing strategy for Covid-19 that now affected almost 6,000 people in the country. According to the revised strategy, asymptomatic direct and high-risk contacts of a confirmed case should be tested once between days 5 and day 14 of coming in his/her contact. All symptomatic contacts of laboratory confirmed cases will also have to be tested. There are 139 government laboratories and 65 private ones that are currently authorised to carry out tests for Covid-19.
