India crosses a milestone, conducts more than 2 crore COVID tests

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 03 Aug 2020, 05:37 pm

New Delhi: In a landmark achievement, India has tested 2,02,02,858 COVID-19 samples so far.

This is pursuant to the key strategy followed by State/UT governments under the guidance of Centre for management of COVID-19 to “Test aggressively, Track efficiently and Isolate and Treat promptly".

Effective implementation of this approach has led to ramping up the testing capacity across the country and facilitated widespread COVID testing of people.

With 3,81,027 samples tested in the last 24 hours, the number of Test Per Million (TPM) has increased to 14640.

Currently, the testing per million for India is 14640. While the country's TPM has demonstrated a steady upward trend indicating the growing testing network, 24 States and UTs have reported higher testing per million than the national average.
