LUCKNOW: Even as new cases continue to decline in UP, the number of Covid-19 tests has been maintained like before. As a result of the same, Uttar Pradesh became the first state to conduct three crore COVIS-19 tests on Thursday.

COVID-19

Data from the state health department showed that with 1,30,384 tests in the past hours, the total number of Covid-19 tests done in the state reached 3,00,37,025. The achievement is surely remarkable considering that at the onset of the pandemic, the state had just one lab to run COVID-19 confirmation tests.

According to information from the Indian Council of Medical Research which is tracking progress of COVID-19 tests, the total number of Covid-19 tests conducted in the country so far is 20,87,03,791. This means that UP accounts for over 14% of total tests done in the country.
