During a discussion with officials through video-conferencing, Sudhakar said that the final-year students of lab technician courses, science students of RGUHS, and volunteers will be given proper training before assigning COVID duties.

“The government is facing it difficult task in meeting the target of collecting 30,000 samples per day in Bengaluru alone due to shortage of staff.
