Why RT-PCR test started decreasing: HC
The Delhi High Court questioned the lack of RT-PCR tests in the capital. The court asked the Delhi government why the RT-PCR test is declining every day. On April 19, 68 thousand tests were done and now on April 20, it has reduced to 56 thousand. Similarly, only 45 thousand tests were conducted on 21 April.
The reason for the continuous decline in testing is that the Delhi Government has ordered that action will be taken against labs that do not submit their reports within 24 to 36 hours. Due to this, labs have started to refuse people coming for testing.
