  • Uttar Pradesh has become the first state in the country to start pool testing of corona virus
  • The move is aimed at speeding up the screening process and also bring down the cost of testing samples
  • State health department has also decided to carryout the audit of any death in state due to COVID-19.
  • This facility is being expanded in all districts and initially 5 samples will be pooled. In the pool testing method, multiple swab samples are pooled together and tested. 
  • If the result of a collection of samples comes negative, then that means all the samples in that group are negative.
