Practo, a digital healthcare platform, said that Covid-19 tests were now available for booking on its platform. Practo said it has partnered with Thyrocare, a chain of diagnostic and preventive care laboratories, to perform the Covid-19 detection test, which has been licensed by the government and the ICMR.
While as of Saturday, the test has been made available to residents of Mumbai, it will be extended to the rest of the country.
“General testing is essential to track the scale and prevent the transmission of Covid-19. To ensure that everyone can get tested, the government is constantly working to expand the list of laboratories and centers. We have partnered with Thyrocare to ensure that access to these tests is not an issue, ”said Dr. Alexander Kuruvilla, head of health strategy, Practo.
