According to an official, special teams formed by the district authorities took samples of a cross-section of people on Friday. Some districts started the process on Thursday itself. Since there is no centralized compiling of the test results yet, the percentage of people testing positive is not known.

There is an enhanced focus on testing now as the positivity rate in Delhi has been going down for the past one week, which, many believe, is a sign that Covid-19 is finally under check.
