We are planning a trip to Dehra Dun from Dimapur. How long does it take to get test results before travelling? Where can we get the rapid test done?
The wait for test result depends on the testing capacity of the district and the testing load at the moment. Given the recent spike in the number of positive cases, it may be longer now. While contacting the CMO or district surveillance unit Dimapur for test, you can ask how long it will take. Rapid Test is for use only in certain circumstances like containment zone or hospital setting. Your destination State or States in transit may not acknowledge a rapid test result which has chance of false negative result. You should go for RT-PCR or TrueNat test.
