In a landmark achievement, India has tested over two crore COVID-19 samples so far. More than two crore eight lakh 64 thousand tests have been conducted in the country till now. The remarkable feat has been achieved  by the State and Union Territories under the guidance of Centre for management of COVID-19.

The objectives of testing aggressively, tracking efficiently and isolating and treating promptly are rigourously followed by States and Union Territories in terms of the guidance given by the Health Ministry. Effective implementation of this approach has led to ramping up the testing capacity across the country and facilitated widespread COVID testing of people.

With six lakh 61,892 samples tested in the last 24 hours, the number of Tests Per Million in the country has increased to over 14 thousand 850. COVID testing in the country has demonstrated a steady upward trend indicating the growing testing network. In another positive development, around 24 States and Union Territories have reported higher testing per million than the national average.
