Details of the proposal:

  • Top health officials have confirmed that the Minister has already agreed to the proposal and the process to set up NCDC in Hyderabad has begun. This will be the second full-fledged centre in the country.
  • Health experts in Hyderabad believe that the decision to set up such a centre is a shot in the arm for healthcare providers, who are always dependent on National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune and NCDC, New Delhi to confirm rare viral strains and agents behind frequent outbreaks of mysterious ailments, especially among the tribal population here. With the NCDC facility in Hyderabad all such tests can be done here itself thus minimising the time gap between the tests and the results.
