Order re ICMR Advisory for Newer Additional Strategies for COVID 19 Testing Dt 23rd June 2020

Indian Council of Medical Research
Department of Health Research,
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare,
Government of India

ADVISORY
Newer Additional Strategies for COVID-19 Testing

Dated: 23/06/2020

 

Existing strategies for COVID-19 testing: 

 

  1. Real Time RT-PCR is the gold standard test for detecting cases of COVID-19. The test requires specialized laboratory setup with specific biosafety and biosecurity precautions to be followed. Average time taken is around 4-5 hours from receipt of sample to getting the result. The advantage of this platform lies in its accuracy of detection as well as ability to run upto 90 samples in a single run. In view of the specialized laboratory requirements, this test cannot be performed at every district level lab which do not have molecular virology facilities. However, wherever available, it is advised to use real time RT-PCR as the frontline test for diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2. 

 

  1. The TrueNat and CBNAAT systems have also been deployed for diagnosis of COVID-19 in view of availability of customized cartridges. These platforms have widespread availability even at district and primary health center level as these platforms are widely used for diagnosis of Tuberculosis and other infectious diseases. These platforms have a quick turnaround time (30 -60 minutes) but only 1-4 samples can be tested in one run, limiting the maximum numbers that can be tested to 24-48 samples / day only. The viral lysis buffer that comes with the COVID-19 cartridges inactivates the virus and poses minimum biosafety hazard. Safety is further augmented by the closed nature of these platforms and minimum sample handling. These features have facilitated use of these platforms at grass root level thereby increasing access to testing. 

 

  1. All COVID-19 tests conducted through RT-PCR, TrueNat and CBNAAT are reported on ICMR data entry portal which helps in drawing the National estimates on numbers of tests conducted, numbers of positives, tests conducted per million population etc. This data portal is the single National source of data entry which is accessed by all relevant Ministries / Departments for defining National strategies for COVID-19. ICMR urges all the laboratories to continue entering data into the ICMR portal https://cvstatus.icmr.gov.in/login.php to help in guiding the National strategies appropriately. 

 

  1. In an effort to ramp up testing capacity, ICMR has approved a total of 1000 COVID-19 testing labs in both public (730) and private sector (270). This includes RT-PCR labs (557); TrueNat Labs (363) and CBNAAT Labs (80). However, in spite of these developments, access to testing still remains a huge challenge in a large country like India. There is a definite need to increase the outreach of testing by introducing rapid point of care diagnostic tests. Also, there is value in conducting serosurveys with IgG based antibody tests in certain situations. In view of this, it is now suggested to include additional testing methods to improve the access and availability of testing in various parts of the country.

 

  1. Rapid Point-of-Care (PoC) Antigen Detection Test (for diagnosis along with RT-PCR):

 

  1. Since the entire public health machinery is focused to test, track and treat COVID-19 patients, it is imperative to explore the existing antigen-based assays as point-of-care tests for early detection of SARS-CoV-2. Such tests, if reliable, would be valuable at field level for early detection of infection and quick containment. Availability of antigen-based detection tests is very limited all across the world. Most of such tests have relatively moderate sensitivity but high specificity. However, manufacturers of all antigen-based tests are encouraged to approach ICMR for validation and inclusion of their test in the wider testing approach of the country. A positive test should be considered as a true positive whereas all symptomatic individuals testing negative through the rapid antigen test should be confirmed with a real-time PCR test.

 

  1. ICMR and AIIMS, Delhi independently evaluated the stand-alone rapid point of care antigen detection assay which does not require a specialized machine and can be interpreted with a naked eye. The test is a promising tool for quick diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 in field settings. The assay is known as Standard Q COVID-19 Ag kit and has been developed by SD Biosensor with manufacturing unit at Manesar, Gurugram. On validation, the test has been found to have a very high specificity with moderate sensitivity. It is now recommended to use Standard Q COVID-19 Ag detection test as a point of care diagnostic assay for testing in the containment zones as well as hospitals in combination with the gold standard RT-PCR test. ICMR has issued an advisory dated 14th June 2020 in this regard, which may be accessed at: https://www.icmr.gov.in/pdf/covid/strategy/Advisory_for_rapid_antigen_test_14062020.pdf.
    The recommended use of the rapid antigen PoC as per the ICMR advisory is enclosed at Annexure 1.

 

  1. Standard Q COVID-19 Ag kit is available with the local vendor of SD Biosensor.

Contact details are as follows:

Dr. CS Bedi.

Mobile No: +919810426069; Email: drbedi@icloud.com


For any technical assistance /clarifications, details of the ICMR contact point are given below:

Dr. Sidhartha Giri

Mobile No: +918754617892; Email: sidhartha.g@icmr.gov.in

 

ICMR recommends deployment of the rapid antigen PoC test in the following settings:

i) All containment zones identified by the State Governments,

ii) All Central & State Government Medical Colleges and Government hospitals

iii) All private hospitals approved by National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare (NABH).

iv) All private labs accredited by National Accreditation Board for Laboratories (NABL) and approved by ICMR as COVID-19 testing labs.

 

Rapid antigen PoC test is recommended for use subject to the following conditions:

 

i) All hospitals, labs, State Govts intending to perform the PoC antigen test need to register with ICMR to obtain the login credentials for data entry. Interested Institutions may send their request on the following email id’s:

ag-pvthosp-nabh@icmr.gov.in
ag-govthosp@icmr.gov.in

ii) All data of testing needs to be entered into the ICMR portal on a real time basis. The ICMR portal has been modified to include a component on antigen testing. Detailed video is available on ICMR website at http://www.icmr.gov.in/video/Data_Entry_Antigen_v4.mp4. 

iii) All labs/hospitals initiating testing through the rapid antigen PoC test need to ensure that all symptomatic negative patients should be essentially referred to a real-time RT-PCR test for COVID19. This is particularly essential as the rapid antigen PoC test has a moderate sensitivity. iv) All the entities using antigen PoC test are expected to tie up with the nearest RT-PCR COVID-19 testing lab to ensure that all symptomatic who are negative by the rapid antigen test get tested at the nearest facility. 

v) The data of individuals tested by RT-PCR will need to be entered through the lab performing the RTPCR test. 
II. IgG Antibody test for COVID-19 (Only for surveillance and not diagnosis): 

 

  1. IgG antibodies generally start appearing after two weeks of onset of infection, once the individual has recovered after infection and last for several months. Therefore, the IgG test is not useful for detecting acute infection. However, detection of IgG antibodies for SARS-CoV-2 may be useful in the following situations:

    a) Serosurveys to understand the proportion of population exposed to infection with SARS-CoV-2 including asymptomatic individuals. Depending upon the level of seroprevalence of infection, appropriate public health interventions can be planned and implemented for prevention and control of the disease. Periodic serosurveys are useful to guide the policy makers.

    b) Survey in high risk or vulnerable populations (health care workers, frontline workers, immunocompromised individuals, individuals in containment zones etc) to know who has been infected in the past and has now recovered. The groups of individuals who should be prioritized for such serosurveys is enclosed at Annexure 2

 

  1. It is strictly advised to use IgG based ELISA and CLIA assays only for conduct of serosurveys. ICMR has validated and approved IgG ELISA kits for COVID-19. In addition, USFDA approved IgG ELISA and CLIA kits are also available and can be used. Guidance of ICMR on the list of available ELISA and CLIA kits can be accessed at https://www.icmr.gov.in/pdf/covid/kits/ELISA_CLIA_Kits_List_03062020.pdf. It is advised to enable all Government and Private Hospitals, Offices, Public Sector Units etc. to perform the antibody-based testing. This will help in allaying the fear and anxiety of health care workers, office employees etc. As the apex research organization of the country, ICMR is mandated to review and conduct research on the evolving trends of the disease and accordingly advise the states / country on the public health policies. In view of this, it is advised to share the comprehensive report of antibody testing with ICMR at the email id given below: mmurhekar@gmail.com

 

  1. Since test, track and treat is the only way to prevent spread of infection and save lives, it is imperative that testing should be made widely available to all symptomatic individuals in every part of the country and contact tracing mechanisms for containment of infection are further strengthened. ICMR advises all concerned State Governments, Public and Private Institutions to take required steps to scale up testing for COVID-19 by deploying combination of various tests as advised above

 

Annexure 1: 

 

Use of Standard Q COVID-19 Ag a point of care diagnostic assay is recommended in the following settings in combination with the gold standard RT-PCR test

A. Containment zones or hotspots (to be performed onsite under strict medical supervision and maintaining kit temperature between 2° to 30° C):

i) All symptomatic Influenza Like Illness (ILI).
ii) Asymptomatic direct and high-risk contacts with co-morbidities (lung disease, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes, neurological disorders, blood disorders) of a confirmed case to be tested once between day 5 and day 10 of coming into contact. 

B. Healthcare settings (to be performed onsite under strict medical supervision and maintaining kit temperature between 2° to 30° C):

– Non-surgical interventions like bronchoscopy, upper GI endoscopy and dialysis etc.

*ILI case is defined as one with acute respiratory infection with fever ≥ 38◦C AND cough

 

Use of the rapid antigen test is recommended in A & B categories above subject to the following conditions

i) Should be interpreted between 15 to 30 minutes with a naked eye. No interpretation should be made before 15 minutes of after 30 minutes.
ii) Symptomatic individuals who test negative for COVID-19 by rapid antigen test should be definitely tested sequentially by RT-PCR to rule out infection, whereas a positive test should be considered as a true positive and does not need reconfirmation by RT-PCR test.
iii) Samples (only nasopharyngeal swabs) to be collected by a trained healthcare worker following full infection control practices including use of proper PPE.
iv) The test should be conducted onsite under strict medical supervision and within one hour of sample collection in extraction buffer.

No. 52/DGHS/PH-IV /COVID-19/2020/prsecyhfw/14450-14649   Dated: 20.06.2020

 


ORDER

 

Delhi Disaster Management Authority accepted the recommendations of the committee, under Dr. V. K. Paul, member, NITI Aayog for fixing rates for COVID related treatment to be charged by private hospitals in NCT of Delhi, with the proviso that all COIVD beds would be at rates given by the Committee subject to upper limit of 60% of the beds of total hospital bed capacity.

The prescribed maximum per day package rates for COVID related treatments in private hospitals in NCT of Delhi are as below: 

 

Hospital rates for per dav of admission (in Rs.)
Category of hospitals Moderate Sickness  Severe Sickness  Very Severe Sickness
ISOLATION BEDS

Including supportive care and oxygen 
ICU without need for ventilator care ICU with ventilator care

(invasive/ noninvasive)  
NABH accredited Hospitals (including entry level)  10,000/-
(includes cost of PPE Rs. 1200/-) 
15,000/-
(includes cost of PPE Rs. 2000/-) Rs. 2000/-)
18,000/-
(includes cost of PPE Rs. 2000/-) Rs. 2000/-)
Non-NABH accredited Hospitals 8,000/-
(includes cost of PPE 

Rs. 1200/-) 

13,000/-
(includes cost of PPE Rs. 2000/-) 
15,000/-
(includes cost of PPE Rs. 2000/-) 

 

  1. The hospitals would follow the national guidelines on admission of COVID-19 patients. Generally, hospital care is required for COVID-patients with moderate or severe/very severe disease. Patients with mild disease are to be managed at home or in COVID Care Centers which are not hospital but improvised isolation/ observation facilities created in non-hospital premises. However, patients with mild disease but having co-morbidities and/ or if elderly, as defined may be treated as having moderate illness and therefore admitted. 

 

  1. The rates for private hospitals beds would be all inclusive as a package. This will include, but not limited to: bed, food and other amenities, monitoring, nursing care, doctors’ visits/ consults, investigations including imaging, treatment as per the national protocol for COVID care and standard care for co-morbidities, oxygen, blood transfusion etc. 

 

  1. The package rates would include costs of medical care of underlying co-morbid conditions including supportive care and cost of medications thereof, for the duration of care for COVID. Since many of the COVID patients have conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular problems, etc., the charges for medical care of such co-morbidities will be a part of the package. This would include short term haemodialysis as a part of acute care during the current admissions. 

 

  1. The rates would apply to standard care of COVID-19 patients as per the National Guidelines. But these would not cover experimental therapies (e.g. Ramdesivir etc.). Standard management of Co-morbidities would be covered. 

 

  1. The charges will not include the cost of COVID-19 diagnostic test(s) as well as IL-6 Levels. 

 

  1. The proposed charges will apply to paediatric patients as well. 

 

  1. For pregnant women, costs for delivery (normal/C-section) and care of new born would be charged by the hospital extra as per prevailing PMJA Y rates of relevant packages. 

 

  1. There will be no compromise on the quality of clinical care services provided to the patients receiving services on the proposed package rates. The prescribed rates are applicable with immediate effect.
