Corona or not? Spend 250 rupees and check yourself at home

Now you can check at home whether you have corona infection or not. For the first time in India, a test kit to test the corona at home has been prepared. It has been approved by the Indian Council of Medical Research ie ICMR. According to ICMR guidelines, those who have symptoms of corona or who have come in contact with a corona infected may use a self-examination kit. 

This test kit has been developed by MyLab Discovery Solutions. It was announced on Thursday. The test kit is named Koviself and its price has been fixed at Rs 250. There will be no need of any medical prescription to buy it.

It is also very easy to use. There will be no need to send samples anywhere. One must download an app on their mobile after purchasing the test kit. Director General of ICMR, Dr. Balram Bhargava said that after testing with the test kit, the picture will have to be uploaded on the mobile app and with it the result will come. This test kit will be available in the market soon. 

Mylab managing director Hasmukh Rawal said that each kit will be provided with all bio-tested materials, instruction sheets for use, and a biohazard bag to safely dispose of test material. A nasal swab will be used for examination. This coviself kit will give results in 15 minutes. 

Let me tell you that Mylab can currently manufacture 7 million test kits in a week and it is planned to increase it to 1 crore per week in 14 days. 

The corona test is currently being conducted in two ways in the country. One is the antigen test which gives quick results and the second is the RT PCR test. For the first time in the country, the RT PCR test was developed by the Mylab company.

Dr. Bhargava of ICMR said that promotion of corona investigation has been centralized for epidemic control in India. He said that large-scale efforts are being made to reduce the positivity rate below 5 percent.

He said that ‘Rapid antigen testing booths should be set up in cities, towns and villages. We have a target of 25 lakh tests by the end of the month and 45 lakh tests by the next month.

Currently, about 20 lakh tests are being done every day in the country. On Wednesday, nearly 2 million tests were conducted across the country. In all, around 32 crore tests have been done so far.

Please tell that the cases of corona infection once again remained below three lakhs but the number of deaths increased. The number of infections on Wednesday was 2,76,110 and 3,874 people died while 2,59,551 new cases of infections were reported in the last 24 hours and 4,209 people have died.
