The total number of people who have been tested positive for the deadly coronavirus in India stands at 110 on Monday. With this, the fear surrounding the ailment is becoming more and more palpable.

With the World Health Organisation (WHO) declaring the virus outbreak to be a pandemic, several entities are attempting to limit social interactions to avoid the transmission of the disease. Schools have been declared shut, business conferences stand cancelled, and most social events remain postponed.



Besides, the government has intensified its efforts to scale up both diagnosis and treatment facilities. Many of the states across the country are preparing to enhance provisions for community surveillance, isolation wards, trained manpower, and rapid response teams. Meanwhile, people who notice prominent symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath and respiratory difficulties are being encouraged to get themselves checked.

SocialStory has compiled a list of test centers that have been set up across India for the screening of coronavirus.
