The Indian Council of Medical Analysis (ICMR) has developed a testing package that may detect the brand new Omicron COVID-19 variant within two hours. Usually, it takes three to 4 days to detect the Omicron variant in contaminated folks.

The package is now being produced on a bulk foundation by the West Bengal-based GCC Biotech on a public-private partnership (PPP) mannequin.
