As per a report by Outlook India, ICMR has mandated that currently only individuals with a doctor’s prescription can get tested for COVID-19. Earlier, last month, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reportedly requested only symptomatic and severe patients to get tested, according to The Indian Express. In case you’re in the latter category, find yourself vulnerable to the virus, or have recently undertaken travels, then keep this list of ICMR-authorised laboratories in New Delhi handy that are conducting RT-PCR tests.
