As we stay here secured down our homes while COVID-19 compromises how we carry on with our carries on with; one ponders the old life we drove. We rarely stressed over contact with others, or individuals strolling past us in the road. At the point when we got a viral disease, the greater part of us thought of a cold or influenza, and anticipated throbs, torments, and a stodgy head, however not many of us dreaded death toll. What's more, relatively few individuals were keen on points, for example, testing rates, testing techniques, or testing speeds. Be that as it may, some were. The papers in this virtual issue are by a portion of the specialists that have been creating tests to recognize infections.
