If every Indian is tested for #COVID19 the total cost will be

Rs. 6,300,000,000,000

i.e. Six Lakh Thirty Thousand Crore

i.e. 3.3% of GDP

i.e. 64% of Total Direct Tax Collection

Let that sink in. Then we can talk about tests/million data comparison with other nations.
Some are citing that the lockdown is costing us more. They are working on false presumption that testing is cure for COVID19. It is not. Lockdown would still have been necessary.
