In a bid to reduce load from laboratories facing challenges to meet the expected testing target due to extraordinary case load and staff getting infected with COVID-19, top medical body in India - Indian Council Of Medical Research (ICMR) has rolled out the new testing guidelines. It states that the need for RT-PCR test in healthy individuals undertaking inter-state domestic travel may be completely removed; RT-PCR test must not be repeated in any individual who has tested positive once either by RAT or RT-PCR and that testing is not required for COVID-19 recovered individuals at the time of hospital discharge.
