Test Positivity Rate

Test Positivity Rate is the percentage of the total coronavirus tests that was positive. This excludes the undetermined results. According to the World Health Organisation, if the TPR is less than 5 per cent, then the infection is under control in a particular locality. It is an important metric used to determine whether or not the coronavirus infection is being curbed in a particular region. This figure depends on the volume of COVID-19 tests done as well as the number of people being tested.
