New Delhi: In the wake of the Corona epidemic in India, ICMR has issued new guidelines regarding testing. ICMR said that it is no longer necessary to repeat RT-PCR at the time of discharge from the hospital. A request has also been made to remove the requirement of RT-PCR TEST for inter-state travel.

These travel guidelines

The ICMR rules have changed given the shortage of testing kits. ICMR said that if there are no symptoms during the journey, then travel. Do not travel otherwise. At the same time, if the person turns out to be positive in the antigen test, then it is not necessary to undergo an RT-PCR test. Not only this, if you have once been negative in the RT-PCR test, do not conduct the RT-PCR test again.

The rapid test needs to be emphasized

The ICMR said that antigen tests should be conducted in all government and private hospitals. Apart from this, there should be a rapid test of corona in all markets, places like RWA. This facility should be available 24 hours a day.
