Amidst the competition and domination to find a coronavirus vaccine, India has also found the first important weapon to fight this disease.  Pune's MyLab Discovery Solution has said that it has made COVID19 testing kit and it has also received approval from the Indian Council of Research (ICMR).  Srikant Patole, member of the board of directors of My Lab Discovery Solution, told NDTV that the cost of a kit is Rs 1 lakh 20 thousand and it will cost Rs 1200 per test.  100 tests can be done with one kit.  He told that the lab can produce 2 lakh kits every week.  They told that screening is being done first, then screening is done, then the report comes.  In this whole process it takes 7 hours on an average. While in this process, screening and confirmation will be done in two and a half hours.  Apart from this, ICMR has also approved the kit of a German company.

It is important to note that with the introduction of this kit, there will be a big relief and there will not be much waiting for the report of the investigation of the patients.  Its advantage will be that coronavirus patients can be identified as soon as possible.  Competition has been started among all the countries including China, America, England and Japan to find the vaccine for this disease and scientists from all over the world are working day and night for it.  No concrete results have been achieved so far among many claims.

 Let us tell you that the cases of Corona virus infection in the country increased to 562 on Wednesday, while the revised number of deaths has reduced to nine after one person was not found infected with the virus.  In order to save the virus infection, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the lockdown after Wednesday, 133 crore people of the country will remain completely locked in homes for three weeks.
