Until the time that a vaccine develops for Covid-19, testing is the need of the hour. However, testing kits are expensive, and not widely available in India. 


Consequently, India’s largest publishing house, Burda Media India has started a fundraiser on Milaap to raise money to ‘donate RT-PCR Test Kits to the worst affected areas in India’. 


Comedian Kunal Kamra, along with celebrities like Anurag Kashyap, Javed Akhtar etc., are supporting the cause by auctioning personal items, including awards, to the highest bidder.
