Ankita Chetana |Apr 06, 2020

After reporting a high risk of coronavirus infection in India, the country decides to test and treat COVID-19 patients for free for the poor.

On Sunday, the Indian government made a decision of free tests and treatments for patients of COVID-19 with a condition that they are undergoing Ayushman Bharat medical program for the poor in the worse situation of coronavirus in India.

In a serious situation of the ongoing spread of coronavirus in India, Dr. Bhushan from the program said:

"The empaneled hospitals can use their own authorized testing facilities or tie up with an authorized testing facility for the scheme. These tests would be carried out as per the protocol set by Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) and by private labs approved/registered by the ICMR. Similarly, treatment of COVID-19 by private hospitals will be covered under AB-PM JAY."

According to him, the decision aims at increasing the supply of facilities for tests and treatments and expanding access through the AB-PM JAY scheme set in private hospitals. Harsh Vardhan, the Union Health Minister claimed:

"In this unprecedented crisis, we have to very actively involve the private sector as a key partner and stakeholder in the fight against COVID-19. Making testing and treatment available under Ayushmann Bharat PM-JAY will significantly expand our capacities by including private sector hospitals and labs and mitigate the adverse impact of this catastrophic illness on the poor."
