NEW DELHI: Amid concerns that RT-PCR may be failing to detect SARS-CoV-2 variants, the Centre on Friday said the test "does not miss" the variants found in the country so far.
The Covid-19 virus has been mutating and various mutations have been found in many countries, as well as in India. These include UK (17 mutations), Brazil (17 mutations) and South Africa (12 mutations) variants. These variants have higher transmissibility. The UK variant has been found extensively in the UK, all across Europe and has spread to Asia and America.
However, the Centre expressed concern that several states did not send samples for genome sequencing along with clinical data of positive people, despite being advised to do so.

Card image cap

Updated: Mar 5, 2021, 09:09 PM IST
An eight-month-long study to determine the feasibility of the Saliva-based Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) has revealed that the test is less expensive, faster and safer than the RT-PCR tests which are widely used in India. While saliva-based RAT is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US, this test is not approved by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). However, nasal and oral RAT is permitted in India. 
According to the doctors, this study was done to establish the efficacy of the test among the Indian population, as not many studies were performed in India on this method of saliva-based testing.
