ICMR asks states to scale up rapid antigen testing

Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has asked states to scale up testing for Covid-19 in all of its districts.

The research body has also created a set of common log-in credentials for each district, to avoid individual organisations, labs or hospitals having to enter data of all confirmed cases separately on the ICMR portal.

The states have also been directed to link each identified antigen testing facility with a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) centre to conduct confirmatory tests.
