COVID 19: List of Coronavirus Test Centres Across Indian States, UTs

One does not simply walk into a coronavirus testing centre. There is protocol and there is only a limited set of labs that have been authorised for the job. The Indian Council for Medical has says only patients with a certain travel history or those in contact with infected persons need to be tested. When? Where? How? Here’s the breakdown

Who needs to be tested for coronavirus?
According to the Department of Health Research, the disease COVID-19 is primarily reported in individuals with a travel history to affected countries or those who are in close contact with infected individuals. In India, there is no community transmission yet. Hence, not everyone needs to be tested.

How to get tested for coronavirus (COVID-19)
As per the government’s health protocol, if you have had direct or close physical contact with a laboratory confirmed case or if you have a history of travel within the last 14 days to high risk COVID-19 infected countries, you will have to be home quarantined for 14 days. Only if you show symptoms during this time will a laboratory test be conducted. If these samples test positive, you will be administered further tests and be hospitalised. If they don’t, you’re fine.

Every state has a small number of sample collection labs. This is where your throat swab + nasal swab will be taken. These will be sent up to testing labs, who will then send it to the National Institute of Virology in Pune for final tests.
