KATHMANDU: Kathmandu. The government has urged not to press for PCR testing. As PCR testing is expensive and costs a lot of government money, only those who need it should be tested, said a spokesman for the Ministry of Health and Population, Jageshwar Gautam has requested.
He said that only those who are deemed necessary by the government, have symptoms and are in contact tracing should undergo PCR testing. Spokesperson Gautam said that the PCR test should not be used as a medicine for corona and those who are suspected and have no symptoms even after the corona has been confirmed should stay at home in isolation.
He said that those who did not show any symptoms should not go to the isolation center or hospital as not only themselves but also other people would be safe while living in home isolation.
