With timely action 10 lakh lives saved: Modi opens new corona testing centres

  • The high tech labs (high throughput facilities) can do 10,000 corona tests each, every day. With this, India will have the capacity for doing 5 lakh tests a day, which is further being enhanced to 10 lakh soon.
  • The labs are enabled to test other diseases also like Hepatitis B and C, HIV, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Cytomegalovirus, Chlamydia, Neisseria, Dengue, etc. Therefore, it's an investment for the future too, Modi said.

Till a therapy is found, prevention is cure:

  1. Wearing face mask;
  2. Maintaining physical distance; and,
  3. Frequent hand-washing with soap

NEW DELHI, July 27: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, launching three more coronavirus sample testing labs on Monday, said that from a position of having just one lab in the month of January last, today the country has 1,100 testing centres.

With timely expansion and strengthening of health infrastructure and medical services, 10 lakh patients have recovered and in this India's performance is better than most other countries, he claimed.

Modi credited this achievement to the dedicated services rendered by the medical staff. Large-scale training and deployment of human resources like paramedicals, asha workers, anganwadi workers and health workers in the areas of patient care, isolation, quarantine, contact tracing and door-to-door surveys contributed greatly to delivering remarkable results.

The Prime Minister, who opened the facilities online, said the new labs, set up in Noida, Mumbai and Kolkata, are equipped to undertake many other investigations and tests for other diseases also which they will continue even after the epidemic comes to an end.

These are permanent labs designed with a perspective for the future to meet demands for tests like Hepatitis B and C, HIV, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Cytomegalovirus, Chlamydia, Neisseria, Dengue, etc.

The high tech labs (high throughput facilities) can do 10,000 corona tests each a day. With this, India will have the capacity for doing 5 lakh tests a day, which is further being enhanced to 10 lakh soon.

The new centres are located at the ICMR institutions in the respective areas - National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research in Noida, National Institute for Research in Reproductive Health in Mumbai and the National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases in Kolkata.

When coronavirus started spreading in India five months back, India did not have any manufactturing facility for PPEs, ventilators or N-95 masks and was importing the medical equipments, gears and other devices needed by the doctors and the health workers. Today that has changed and India is getting ready to export these items.

Modi asked every Indian to take precaution against the new viral epidemic, which has turned out to be much more puzzling and devastating than one thoght, especially because there is no medicine as the deadly pathogen is a new virus.

Till a therapy is found, prevention is cure. He urged the countrymen to strictly follow the precautionary measures as advised by doctors and scientists which certainly can break the transmission and save lives, considering the nature of the virus as studied so far:

  1. Wearing face mask;
  2. Maintaining physical distance; and,
  3. Frequent hand-ashing
