New Delhi: Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan said in an exclusive interview that it is neither possible nor relevant to test 1.3 billion people for Kovid-19. Answering a question on India’s forward strategy and status regarding testing, he said, “The current testing strategy is need-based and gives priority to individuals who are primarily at risk or who have symptoms. In view of this situation it is regularly revised.

Regarding test data and capacity, the Health Minister said, “Our test capacity is 160,000 per day on 27 May and we have conducted 32,44,884 tests so far. On May 26, we conducted a total of 15,229 trials. Even if we talk about testing a population of 1.3 billion to curb the disease for a moment, you will also recognize that it is not only an expensive process, but it is neither possible nor consistent. . ” He also said that in the first week of February 2020, the number of facilities in the country has increased to 624 from the only laboratory at the National Institute of Virology (NIV) in Pune. It has 435 government laboratories and 189 NABL accredited private laboratories. 

Harshvardhan said that priority-based and targeted testing would be helpful in detecting more cases of Kovid-19 and curbing the disease. He added, “With our efforts to ensure consistency and quality in testing facilities, I am sure we will be in a better position to find the maximum number of cases.”
