“The aim of this special call is to provide assistance to our society in today’s critical condition arising due to pandemic COVID-19. Since this is a need-based call, the proposed work should be completed within 6-12 months, it said.

He added clinicians, scientists and practitioners are expected to work together and make use of modern tools of life science and bio-sciences to understand if something works and if something does not. “If it works, what is the efficacy and in what conditions does it work,” he added.
