Corona Virus Facts – What You Must Know about COVID-2019
Who needs to get tested?
India is in the stage-II which means there is no community transmission of the disease yet so NOT EVERYONE needs to be tested for COVID 19 as of now. But those who got in contact with people who’ve been tested COVID-19 positive and those with a history of travel to China, Italy or other high risk countires in last 14 days need to be tested and quarantined for 14 days.
The 14 days’ Quarantine Period
This is where our social responsibility and integrity is being tested. If people flee quarantine, hide or come out in the society, travel, go shopping then they will spread the infection in the community and we will slip into stage III and IV with alarming consequences.
When do you need to get tested?
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has come up with a very informative chart which will not only tell you whether you need to be tested but also provide you with a 24X7 helpline number 011-2397 8046
