The world is now fighting against the COVID-19 epidemic and India is under lockdown but our country have a very low testing capacity of 8000 tests per day having a total of 92 centers.In India there are many qualified skilled Molecular biologist and Microbiologist who can fill the potential staff shortage to assist with COVID-19 testing at Hospitals or any other diagnostics lab across India.A database of these people should be created by ICMR or Health ministry and shared with local public health hospitals and diagnostic labs.In this staff shortage , volunteers can be trained to support COVID-19 testing.

Volunteers should have Masters in Applied field of Biology (e.g.-Microbiology, Molecular Biology etc.) With experience of following areas-DNA/RNA extraction,RT-PCR.
