New Delhi: India has continued testing more than 6 lakh COVID-19 samples for the second consecutive day.

"The resolve of Union and State/UT Governments to follow aggressive testing as the first important step in the early detection and treatment/home isolation of COVID-19 positive cases has resulted in India rapidly increasing the number of tests done per day," read a government statement.

The graded and evolving response resulted in a testing strategy that steadily widened the testing network in the country.

With 6,19,652 tests conducted in last 24 hours, the cumulative testing as on date has reached 2,14,84,402.
