At present, only government-owned labs are permitted to test the coronavirus.
Here's how much testing for coronavirus will cost you:
People testing positive for coronavirus infection can be tested for free in government laboratories. The government bears this expense which ranges to around Rs 6,000 - Rs 1,500 for screening and Rs 4,500 for re-confirmation.
However, patients testing in a private lab will have to shell more money. According to Times of India, testing at private labs may cost between Rs 9,000 and Rs 12,000. The government may have to decide whether private players will charge as per their costing model or at subsidised rates.
