ICMR new testing rules are faulty

ICMR has issued new testing rules last night for COVID and they are attached. According to me they have got some things wrong:

Incorrect to advise all healthy contacts not to test
A healthy person who has a COVID contact -may infect other high risk folks
If I am healthy & young but I live with an 80 yr diabetic -I MUST isolate & test after a COVID contact!
Need to ramp up testing instead of curtailing it

Can LocalCircle please escalate to them or create a survey on this for everyone’s opinion accumulation more

All Government bodies in place are affiliated to ruling party (any party, neef not be present ruling one) and it is natural and justifiable that guidelines or instructions or such things are done to help political party in place by issuing confusing guidelines. This will result in looting by private hospitals and fund the politicians and bureaucrats in power. It is in expected line considering the seriousness of corona wave being spread by news channels, thereby people to scare/afraid himself and go to hospitals. more  
If you feel strongly, please go ahead and take the test. We have a huge population and each one of us might have come in contact with a person who has later on tested Covid +ve. In many cases we may not even come to know this fact. As such, whoever feels the need for the test, he/she should go for it. more  
The guidelines remain on paper and i have seen in the testing centres people do their own way of doing it and hardly anyone reads it. more  
Don't worry. No one including any government is serious about ICMR guidelines. Secondly ICMR has failed to priovide me under RTI act, a copy of COVID-3 guidelines or recommendations, givean by it to the GoI or any state Govt which I had sought in August 2021. more  
As usual the guidelines are very confusing and misleading. One week ago the virus threat was so big that all the States started talking strict actions offices closed, schools closed,night and weekend curfews and so on. WHO and ICMR both cited that it's dangerous and spread at a high speed. Now if testing and tracing will not be done then how we will protect ourselves and for how long we will keep ourselves confined at our home. Future of our children and youngsters is at stake and also we are always worried about the upkeep and health of the senior citizens. So request the government to take all necessary action to protect the public from this pandemic. more
