Over 8 lakh samples were tested for the novel coronavirus on Tuesday, taking the total number of samples tested to over 3.7 crore so far, the Indian Council of Medical Research said on Wednesday. The Union Health Ministry also tweeted that testing has worked as an 'effective' tool to contain the spread of the deadly virus. The govt last week had achieved its target of a million tests per day when over 10 lakh samples were tested on Friday. Total labs in the country testing for Covid-19 now stand at 1,470 - out of this, 969 are government labs and 501 private, according to Union health ministry.
