The rapid tests had no role. The standards were laid down and an attempt was made to streamline the diagnostic work. Why enough tests are not being done for Corona-virus? Why so late and so little? Why there is so much discrepancy in the results between the lab? We have developed the test overnight in Pakistan, why not to be allowed to start testing on a mass scale? Why few labs are overperforming than the expectations? Why cannot other labs do when kit and equipment is there? There were many such like questions which made the news. The media need something to talk and that something should pertain to the current situation.
