New saline gargle RT-PCR Covid test launched

 

The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research has come up with a do-it-yourself version of the RT-PCR test in which the results can be obtained in three hours.

There is no swab involved in the process and it has already been approved by the Indian Council of Medical Research.

Union health minister Dr harsh Vardhan said this is a remarkable innovation, which will increase the ease and the speed of Covid-19 testing in the country. "This swab-free, non-invasive testing mechanism could prove to be a game-changer," he said.
