Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday has directed officers to ramp up the coronavirus testing facilities in the state and make efficient use of TrueNat machines at its fullest capacity.
“The testing capacity for COVID-19 should be increased. Available TrueNat and rapid antigen machines should be operated at full capacity for doing maximum tests in the state,” an official release said quoting the chief minister.
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) had approved the use of TrueNat, a diagnostic machine for tuberculosis, for conducting coronavirus tests.
The Chief Minister also said that there should be an emphasis on cleanliness in the monsoon season to prevent the spread of vector borne diseases.
