New Delhi, Jagran Bureau. Concerned about the decreasing number of corona tests, the central government has warned the states. Writing a letter to 13 states and union territories, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has emphasized on increasing the number of tests, especially RT-PCR tests. According to Bhushan, due to lack of test, it will be difficult to guess the real danger of corona infection. The states and union territories to which Bhushan has written a letter include Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir, Bengal, Rajasthan, Ladakh, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Manipur, Goa, Kerala, Maharashtra, Sikkim and Nagaland.

The lack of tests will not reveal the correct picture of the increase in corona infection.

Bhushan, citing the increasing movement of people during weddings and festivals to these states, said that due to lack of adequate number of tests, the correct picture of the increase in corona infection will not be able to come out. Due to this, the situation can become very dangerous later. According to him, having the test will help in controlling the corona infection at the local level. A senior Health Ministry official said that in the states to which the letter has been written, some districts are showing signs of increasing the rate of corona infection, such as the number of tests in Kerala has come down to less than 20 percent as compared to May, But the infection rate remains up to 9.7 percent.

The number of patients with cold and flu increased

In his letter, Bhushan, citing the onset of winter season in the country and the increased number of patients suffering from cold and cold during this period, said that there is a need to keep a close watch on all these. He has also asked to ensure regular corona check-up of such patients. Colds and colds are also common symptoms of corona infected. The Union Health Secretary expressed concern over the ratio of RT-PCR tests to the ratio of RT-PCR tests in the above states.

A little carelessness can turn water on the achievements so far

He has also advised the states to strictly follow the old instructions of keeping 70 percent RT-PCR in the test. He has said that even a little carelessness can spoil the achievements so far. For this, he has also given the example of countries in America and Europe, where despite a large number of vaccinations, cases of corona infection are increasing rapidly. Along with this, the states were asked to be constantly vigilant and continue to strictly follow the rules of corona management.
