India and Israel to develop COVID testing kit that gives results in 30 minutes

A team of senior defence and health experts will be in India soon to give finishing touches to a rapid testing COVID-19 test kit which will give results in under 30 seconds which has been developed by India and Israel. The Israeli team of senior officials have been working closely with Principal Scientific Adviser to the Indian government Prof K VijayRaghavan on this project.

India will also receive breakthrough emerging Israeli technologies for combating COVID-19 developed by Israel’s government and private sector to bolster India’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. The plane will also carry mechanical ventilators for use in India.

This collaboration will merge Israeli technology with India’s production capabilities to allow a swift resumption of normal life alongside the corona virus. Since the outbreak of the global pandemic Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu and Prime Minister Modi have held three telephonic talks in which they promised mutual assistance in dealing with the virus & committed to joint technological and scientific research between the countries.

Isreal’s ambassador to India Ron Malka has said, “I am proud to lead this Israeli delegation to India. It is at times like this that our friendship is tested, and the State of Israel is happy to lend a helping hand to India in this complicated and difficult time. I am confident that India and Israel can work together to find innovative and cheap solutions to help the world overcome this crisis.”

In April India sent five-tonne cargo of medicines, including anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, seen as a possible cure for COVID-19 to Israel when there were restrictions of exports of medical masks, PPE and vital pharmaceutical ingredients from India.

The coronavirus situation in India is showing no signs of easing with nearly 12 lakh people affected by the virus and nearly 35000 people dead. Israeli companies will be able to monitor the treatment of large number of patients in India while significantly reducing contact between patients and medical staff. By combining India development and production capabilities and Israeli technology, the solution developed could in future be jointly exported to third countries
