India clocks 75,000 Covid-19 tests per day, crosses 1-million mark
NEW DELHI: On Saturday, India crossed 1 million Covid-19 tests (RT-PCR), a milestone, clocking over 75,000 tests per day with 419 laboratories at work through the country.
With almost a 24/7 working schedule in the past month to bring India’s health infrastructure up to speed in the middle of a deadly pandemic, these 40 days of national lockdown has seen the go nment push 14 mentor institutions like AIIMS, PGI Chandigarh, CMC Vellore, JIPMER Puducherry, SGPIMS Lucknow, AIIMS Bhubaneshwar, etc to assist and train these medical colleges/ labs/ hospitals in carrying out tests. In addition, 15 institutions spread across the country are working as depots for supplying testing kits/ material to these labs.
在过去的一个月里，为了抗击疫情，印度卫生医疗机构几乎每天24小时运转。在40天的全国封锁期间，政府已动员14家机构，如AIIMS、PGI Chandigarh、CMC Vellore、JIPMER Puducherry、SGPIMS Lucknow、AIIMS Bhubaneshwar等，协助培训医学院、实验室和医院进行检测。此外，分布在全国各地的15家机构负责向这些实验室提供检测试剂盒和材料。
With the blanket national lockdown giving in to a more graded opening up, the responsibility for staying safe will move from the go nment to the individual.
Top go nment sources said they would retain their focus on ram up testing, quarantine and treatment of Covid patients. There would be aggressive contact tracing and quarantining of those who may be suspected of infections.
But individuals, communities and society will be called upon to help stop the infection. That would mean getting the elderly and the vulnerable to stay home and out of harm’s way. The ‘vulnerable’ in this case are people with co-morbidities like diabetes, heart problems, hypertension and renal disorders, who have difficulty recovering from this vir s.
Social distancing will become the norm, introducing a behavioural change in a crowded society like India’s. Hand-washing, masks, reporting influenza-like symptoms will all be enforced, whether at the state or local level.
Go nment sources say that while India may have been reasonably successful in controlling the worst of the outbreak, the danger still remains.

India is a country of billion people what is required is population control. Life of humans in India is nothing better than goats. Please please do something seriously to control population.
We Indians are fortunate to have a dynamic leader as our prime minister. May all mighty bless him.....
The PM, CMs and their team has done wonderful work to control Corona Crises and made it a Public Movement which no country in the world cannot do. I hope we are at the end of the Crises.
Modi has brought people together. leftists would never understand the meaning of UNITY.
Hope India will develop the vaccine slso and save Mankind...
We haven't got vaccination for ebola nor SARS. What makes you think that we will find a vaccination for corona.

A good Job
PM Modiji to continue and lead India to great heights in another next 2 more tenures
Great work by the go nment..really commendable..feeling proud
shame only 75000 tests across the country that's a real shame health ministry
our PM Sri Narendra Modi in handling this crisis so boldly, decisively and sensibly
Non BJP ruled states like Maharastra, Rajasthan, Chhatisgarh, Ker, Tamilnadu and Andhra are doing much more testing than BJP ruled states. It seems BJP ruled states are desperately testing less people so that the positive numbers are low.
Great job for a nation of 1.3B people.
SAVE ANDHRA FROM TUGLAQ
we need only one child policy. Two child per family is too much as we failed to implement it 50 years ago. current population has to reduce by more than half.
Indeed our requirement is 10 lakhs tests a day, when compared to our population.
India has to do lot of testing we are still not in the position to decide where we stand in this pandemic and how much vir s spread has actually happened.
India will soon become a Bankrupt country from a Backward country due to this lock down.At least introduce lock down in areas affected from Corona and not districts.Nation wide lock down is not necessary
sir you should run away before india become bankrupt.
and still we need to increase the number of test per day close to 500,000 given our population. USA has tested more than 70lakhs test so far and their daily teat rate now is about 250,000. We are not far behind, but we need to improve.
lies. they take the sample but don't process it for days. look at Delhi the results are coming for samples taken a week back. is this the way to do testing
at this rate.... to cover entire India it will take appromately 40 years???
It will take 2 years to test 50% of the popullation at this rate. 1 year for 25%.
we finally tested 0.1 percent people. great going
