Over seven lakh 43 thousand COVID samples were tested in the country in the last 24 hours. With this, the cumulative testing figure has reached around 18 crores 42 lakh.

The Central Government and ICMR have scaled up the testing infrastructure in a calibrated manner. India's testing capacity has touched 15 lakh per day ensuring easily accessible COVID-19 tests for all.
 

Health Ministry said that very high levels of testing have led to early identification, prompt isolation, and effective treatment of COVID-19 cases. It said, higher volumes of testing have also ensured a lower daily positivity rate which has recorded a steep decline to stand at even below 2.30 percent.

 
Starting from just one testing lab at the National Institute of Virology, Pune, in January this year, the country today has two thousand 323 labs for testing COVID samples which includes one thousand 202 government and one thousand 121 private labs.
