The need to conduct RT-PCR tests for healthy people traveling from one state to another can be completely curbed because such tests are increasing the burden on the laboratories. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has made this recommendation in its consultation to examine Kovid-19 during the second wave of epidemic in the country.
The consultation states that those found infected in the RAT or RT-PCR test do not have to undergo RT-PCR testing again and those recovering from the infection do not have to undergo an investigation even when they are discharged from hospitals.
This consultation has been issued in view of the challenges faced by the Kovid-19 labs in meeting the target of potential investigation due to contagion and excessive burden of cases. The consultation states that for the purpose of reducing the burden on laboratories, the need for RT-PCR testing for healthy people going from one state to another can be completely eliminated.
