Rapid antigen tests start in areas outside Delhi’s containment zones

Scaling up its testing capacity, Delhi government on Friday started conducting rapid antigen detection tests outside the containment zones in all 11 districts in the capital. According to an official, special teams formed by the district authorities took samples of a cross-section of people on Friday. Some districts started the process on Thursday itself. Since there is no centralised compiling of the test results yet, the percentage of people testing positive is not known. There is an enhanced focus on testing now as the positivity rate in Delhi has been going down for the past one week, which, many believe, is a sign that Covid-19 is finally under check.
