The high infectivity of Severe Acute Corona Virus 2 (SARS CoV 2) made Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of World Health Organization (WHO) urge all member states to “Test, Test, Test”. Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) was charged with the responsibility of stewardship of 5 T approach, “Test, Track, Trace, Treat and Technology”. ICMR has successfully ramped up testing facilities to have 1122 government facilities and 867 private National accreditation board for testing and calibration laboratories (NABL) accredited laboratories conduct diagnostic tests for Covid-19 and more than 10 crore samples have been tested.
