ICMR paves the way for walk-in Covid-19 tests

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said in its revised testing advisory that doctor’s prescription will no longer be required for people to get a Covid-19 test from now.

The move comes after a prod by the Delhi high court that asked why people who show no symptoms of the disease – which can be a large proportion of Covid-19 patients – cannot get a test.

The rule until now required people to either have flu-like symptoms or come in close contact with an infected person, following which a doctor could issue a prescription for a test.
