‘Viral’ message on paracetamol a hoax

“If the message were true, there would have been outbreak in India of a massive scale given the paracetamol consumption here,” said Suman Kapur, professor at BITS Pilani’s Hyderabad campus. The hoax message has been doing the rounds for at least two weeks now. It was widely circulated in Indonesia, where the health authorities had to intervene to quash the rumour. Though Dr. Kapur says viruses can survive on tablets, it is a question how they can get into a production facility. Clinical experts say viruses often do not survive long enough to cause illness. “A virus needs a host to survive and multiply. Many of them do not survive for long outside their native host,” said infectious disease specialist Suneetha Nareddy.

Hyderabad-based xBITS, founded by BITS Pilani Hyderabad professor Suman Kapur in 2014, intends to explore similar partnerships with multinationals in the next three years to enter international markets with RightBiotic, a lowcost portable device currently approved for rapid urine culture testing in four hours. According to Kapur, it can also ascertain which antibiotics need to be administered and would be a relevant solution to growing resistance to this family of drugs. Work is also underway to enable Right-Biotic to diagnose bacterial infection in any biological fluid in the same time frame, she added. At the same time, many Indian startups say a paucity of capital support makes it difficult to reach a stage where they could interest global firms with their innovation.
