The expert team from Kuwait found PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) solution for testing novel coronavirus. The initial production phase is currently processing which will be followed by the production phase later.
“This new technique has excellent diagnostic results which would have a qualitative leap”, said Dr. Salman Al-Sabah, head of Surgical Department at Jaber Al Ahamed hospital.
PCR method is widely used in molecular biology stream to make billions of copies of a particular DNA sample in a short period. Thereby a small sample is intensified into a larger one suitable for detailed studies.
How PCR solution works?
PCR method generally consists of four steps namely initialization, Denaturation, Annealing, and Elongation or Extension. The steps are repeated in a specific pattern. The procedure for testing involves blending the patient’s sample with the PCR solution. The medical team claims that the PCR solution helps the nation from spending a huge amount of money and problems based on delayed deliveries from abroad.
Countries face a worldwide challenge in terms of COVID-19. The Kuwaiti Government repatriated the migrants back to their hometown forcefully because of the novel coronavirus. Indians in Kuwait were repatriated with the help of the Vande Bharat mission. As of now, Kuwait has 20,464 coronavirus cases, 148 deaths and 5747 recovered cases according to the reports.
Kuwait enacted curfew in the country to battle with the deadly virus until May 30. The recent innovation of PCR solution will assist the government to counteract quickly in the present scenario.
