Health Minister Satyendra Jain spoke on doubling Covid testing in Delhi.

Jain alleged that Delhi govt officers are being 'pressurised' by MHA to not increase testing.

MHA has, however, termed the allegations baseless.

"Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal gave instructions to double Covid testing.

But officials didn't do so due to pressure from the Home Ministry.

I'm happy that after my letter, MHA has clarified and cleared it.

MHA should see Covid cases in Gujarat, UP and then talk about managing Delhi.

I am hopeful that testing will be doubled soon.

It is unfortunate that despite CM's approval, order had to be cleared by MHA," Jain said.

The national capital has witnessed a marginal rise in the number of Covid cases.

On Wednesday, CM Kejriwal said that Covid testing will be doubled to 40,000 per day within a week.

On an average, 20,000 daily tests are being conducted by the Delhi government.
