I agree

There is an urgent need to empower doctors working in the remote areas because that is where the problem occurs

Can someone develop a portal and an app to guide these doctors immediately when confronted with a case

An expert panel may be requested to help out and there can be a provision to exchange images of the patient and possibly the reptile.
