Test, Track, Treat: MHA Issues Fresh COVID Control Guidelines To All States

New Delhi: Amidst a hike in COVID-19 cases in some parts of India, the Centre on Tuesday asked all states and union territories to enhance proportion of RT-PCR tests, strictly enforce test-track-treat protocol and speed up the pace of vaccination to cover all priority groups.

Issuing fresh guidelines for the month of April, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said that COVID patients need to be isolated or quarantined at the earliest and provided timely treatment.

All contacts have to be traced at the earliest, and similarly isolated and quarantined, it said.

The Home Ministry added that based on the positive cases and tracking of their contacts, containment zones shall be carefully demarcated by the district authorities at the micro level taking into consideration the guidelines prescribed by the Union Health Ministry.

The states and UTs should rapidly increase the proportion of RT-PCR to reach the prescribed level of 70 per cent or more of total tests.

The authorities, based on their assessment of the situation, may impose local restrictions at district or sub-district and city or ward level, with a view to contain the spread of COVID-19, the guidelines said.

The ministry said the government of India has launched the world’s largest vaccination drive against COVID-19.

The guidelines said that the inoculation against the virus, in the present scenario, is critical to break the chain of transmission and hence all state and UT governments should rapidly step up the pace of vaccination to cover all priority groups in an expeditious manner.
