Message: The main objective of the portal is to create awareness among the society about COVID-19. COVID-19 will serve as knowledge source for the COVID pandemic and it will also showcase the ongoing activities in various CSIR labs under different verticals such as Molecular Digital Surveillance, Development rapid and cheap diagnostic kit, New therapies development and drug repurposing, Development of personal protective equipment kit (PPE) and Supply chain. In this portal, users can also get information about various “Myths and Facts” spread around the world about this COVID-19. It provides our visitors an insight into the scientific developments taking place across the globe whether it is about the development of vaccines, therapeutics, epidemiological studies, busting myths and revealing the truths, etc. A special feature which the institute hope will be highly useful is access to the key current activities undertaken by CSIR fraternity for combating COVID-19 such as Molecular Digital Surveillance, Rapid and Cheap Diagnostic Kit, New Therapies/Drug Repurposing, Hospital Assisted Devices and Supply Chain which are being pursued on war footing basis. A group of dedicative Scientists and Research scholars are working round the clock for maintaining the website and create this portal more robust and knowledge resource as fast as possible.
