The global catastrophe has also limited the imports


Then how to fight the battle without armour?

Indian corporate and scientific geniuses endeavor to find indigenous solutions

Mylabs Discovery Solutions created an indigenous solution to test patients for COVID-19

The kit was able to shorten the test time to 2.5 hours with the PathoDetect as against the prevalent 6-8 hours
