If you have any of the above symptoms and have travelled to any of the COVID-19 affected countries including Italy, Iran, Republic of Korea, France, Spain, Germany, UAE etc or you are in contact with a laboratory confirmed positive case immediately call the State Helpline Number or Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India's 24x7 helpline 011-2397 8046.

The helpline service will note down your contact details and contact you with the testing protocols of COVID-19.

If you qualify as a case for testing as per the protocol, you will be tested at a Government approved lab only.
