  • Ms Bhosale headed the team that designed the coronavirus testing kit, called Patho Detect, at Mylab. She began working on it just days after leaving the hospital with a pregnancy complication in February – and managed to submit the kit for evaluation by the National Institute of Virology on March 18, just a day before she delivered her daughter.
  • “It was an emergency, so I took this on as a challenge. I have to serve my nation,” said Minal Dakhave Bhosale.
