    Looks like enough samples are not being collected or there not much tests being done, based on the data for DK shared so far here's what I see

    Jul 14 25129 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 179, Tested Positive:91
    Jul 13 24950 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 209, Tested Positive:131
    Jul 12 24741 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 1909, Tested Positive:196
    Jul 11 22832 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 247, Tested Positive:186
    Jul 10 22585 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 104, Tested Positive:139
    Jul 9 22481 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 300, Tested Positive:167

    Jul 7 21881 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 1031, Tested Positive:83

    Jul 4 15270 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 560, Tested Positive:75
    Jul 3 14710 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 280, Tested Positive:97
    Jul 2 14430 total samples count. Samples difference from previous day count: 293, Tested Positive:9091
    Jul 1 14137 total samples count, Samples difference from previous day count: 381, Tested Positive:84

    We have 4-5 labs being set up in DK but are they being fully utilized? We need to do more and more tests. While contact tracing has worked in the past but looking at the current scenario where almost 70% cases not having any travel history or direct contacts with CoVid19 person I feel there should be more random testing done to get to the root of this.
