NEW DELHI: A leading digital healthcare start-up on Saturday announced that COVID-19 tests are now available on the platform.

In a statement, Bengaluru-based Practo said the company has partnered with Thyrocare to conduct the detection tests, which has been authorised by the Government of India and the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

“Starting today, the test is available for Mumbai residents, and will soon be expanded to the rest of the country. A valid doctor’s prescription, duly filled Test Requisition Form signed by the physician, and a photo ID card has to be presented at the time of testing,” it said.
