KATHMANDU: The government is considering to minimize the rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) following criticism.

According to Spokesperson at the Ministry of Health, Dr Jageshwor Gautam, the RDT tests will be carried out only on people who have been staying in the quarantines for over two weeks.

Dr Gautam said people who have stayed for over 14 days in quarantines do not actually need PCR tests.

There have been wide criticisms against the use of RDT as they have not been effective.

Youths have taken to streets asking the government to go for 100 percent PRC tests by limiting RDT.
