- India and Israel are developing COVID-19 rapid test kits, with results coming in just 30 seconds.
India and Israel are working together to combat the coronavirus epidemic. A team from Israel recently arrived in India and the two countries are working together on four different types of technologies. They are developing COVID-19 rapid test kits, with results coming in just 30 seconds. Israeli ambassador to India, Ron Malaka, visited the special test site built at Doctor Ram Manohar Lohia ( RML ) Hospital on Friday. Here they received information on the ongoing COVID-19 trials over the past three days.
A joint investigation is being conducted with the Defense Research and Development Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Israel, the Defense Research and Development Agency of India, the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, and the Chief Scientific Advisor.
The Ministry is closely observing this research. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Chief Scientific Advisor, Professor R.K. Vijayaraghavan was also present. In a statement issued by Israel, RML Hospital said it was one of four testing sites on four different types of technologies capable of detecting coronavirus in less than 30 seconds.
These simple, non-invasive techniques also include voice tests, which detect changes in a patient’s voice using artificial intelligence. There is also work on breathing analyzer. Under this, the patient releases his breath into the tube, and with the help of terra-hertz waves, he is found to have corona or not.
Success in Corona War:
On behalf of Israel, ‘these tests are being conducted in a wider sample of patients in India and if the results justify the effectiveness of the tests, they are said to be massively produced in India and that the two countries jointly do its marketing’.
Speaking during a visit to the test site, Ron Malka said that if one of these tests succeeds in detecting the virus within a minute, it will be a huge success in the war with Corona. “With the combination of India and Israel’s advanced technology and India’s manufacturing skills, we have saved people’s lives and can limit the risk of coronation until the vaccine is developed,” he said.

Professor Vijayaraghavan said the two countries are doing significant research together to combat corona. Talking about the relationship between India and Israel, the professor said the good relations and trust between the two countries have given momentum and quality to existing studies over the years. Some of these will succeed. “I am sure these experiments will prove important to our countries and the world,” he said.
Notably in India and Israel, there is an agreement for joint research and development for rapid diagnosis based on big data and artificial intelligence technology. Under this, a team of Israeli experts arrived in India earlier this week. The Israeli delegation has also brought ineffective treatment and surveillance equipment, which reduces virus exposure by health workers. The team also brought in 83 advanced respirators, whose exports are still banned in Israel.
