A Virologist In Pune Invents The First Coronavirus Testing Kit For India

Ankita Chetana |Mar 30, 2020

Ahead of a more serious coronavirus situation in India, a virologist in Pune has created the first Covid-19 testing kit to support the management of the pandemic.

Up to now, there are more than 720,000 positive cases with coronavirus over the world. Nearly 35,000 people amongst them died from almost 200 countries and areas. The situation is getting worse and complex with unpredictable directions, which can cause more serious cases. In India, the infected cases rose to over 1,000 cases with 29 dead people.

There haven't been any prevention vaccine or curing measures yet, the only thing to improve protection is available widespread testing. With the intense demands from many countries including India, the pressure of manufacturing testing kits get higher.

Overcoming the harsh scenery of lacking testing kits, a medical testing facility in Pune has been the first company of India to produce a coronavirus testing kit. Now the country can have the source of supplying this must-have kit.

The private diagnostic company called MyLab which developed the test kit named Patho Lab has been approved by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) to collaborate with the National Institue of Virology (NIV). As per reports, the test kit doesn't cost too much and still works effectively.

Especially, virologist Minal Dakhave Bhosale got many praises for her big achievement. Talking about her, she completed her work before giving birth to her baby. She shared:

"It was an emergency, so I took this on as a challenge. I have to serve my nation."

The company which has been working for 6 years set a target of more than 15,000 coronavirus testing kits per day. Since then, over 1 lakh citizens can be tested in a week.

Testing Kit
Most countries over the world are lacking the test kits

Earlier, only people traveling from the affected areas or healthcare professionals can undergo the test. But with the development of the testing kits, anyone who has a respiratory illness and is admitted to a hospital will have to be tested. We hope that the country will see a light in preventing the pandemic with this solution.
