The government in the country wants to test the corona of more and more people so that this epidemic can be completely defeated. The RT-PCR in the country was priced at Rs 4,500 for Corona’s investigation. Which is now being reduced. Indian Council for Medical Research – The Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) has asked all states to engage with private labs to determine the cost of testing. So that the test of corona can be more. But after the Gujarat government stopped testing corona in a private laboratory, the number of corona patients has decreased.
So far, private labs are offering a package of 50 or more tests, including Covid-19, for Rs 5,000. The Indian Council for Medical Research has written to the states saying that now many companies in the country have started making test kits. Which is now being sold.
In such a situation, when the kit is available cheaply, the lab also needs to reduce the cost of testing. The Indian Council for Medical Research has asked the states to fix a fair price for corona testing with all private labs so that more and more people can do their tests.
The Indian Council for Medical Research has appealed to private labs to test corona free of cost. The appeal has had no significant effect on private labs. Private labs will have to pay the salaries of their employees as well as the cost of kits and reagents, so refused to accept.
