After a long struggle, the Gujarat government finally stopped testing with the Rapid Kit
After a long struggle, the Gujarat government has finally stopped testing with the Rapid Kit. The use of Rapid Test Kit has been discontinued after testing 8900 in the state. Most of the patients tested negative from the kit ordered from China. The central government had decided to stop the testing due to inconclusive results. It is to be noted that in many districts of Gujarat, tests have been done with Rapid Kit and those districts were declared Corona Free. As a result, the government and the health department are in a dilemma.
