The severity of the second wave of the pandemic is increasing in the country. But the number of sample tests is not increasing concurrently, and the tests are still quite city-centric. Moreover, the coronavirus has not much affected the minds and lifestyles of most people in rural areas. As a result, despite having symptoms of infection, they are moving normally without having themselves tested. As a result, the risk of a community spread also remains high. In addition to increasing the number of sample tests, initiatives should be taken to make the whole process of testing easier for the rural people.
