Mumbai Citizens Can Now Be Tested For CO.VID-19 At Home

This is a great way to help people stay inside and honoring the 21-day lockdown as now there is no need to go out to have a CO.VID-19 test

The Indian government has taken a heavy-handed measure to stop the infection of CO.VID-19 – a complete lockdown of the country for 21 days. And as the pandemic shows no sign of slowing down, testing to see whether you are infected is vital. If you live in Mumbai, there is a very convenient way you can take it.

The Indian Council for Medical Research, or ICMR, has given approval to all private labs to conduct tests. So if you notice symptoms, contact the nearest lab for an at-home service.

This is a great way to help people stay inside and honoring the 21-day lockdown as now there is no need to go out to have a CO.VID-19 test.

India has been praised by WHO for its timely actions to ward off the pandemic. However, testing is far from enough. And with private labs entering the fight, we now have hope that the lockdown will bring the benefits the government hopes for when they enforce it.

As of Wednesday, India saw 90 new cases of CO.VID-19. Now, the total number of victims in the country is 627. New cases are reported in Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Gujarat, and Maharashtra.

The Health Ministry reports that on Tuesday, India has 52 new cases. Monday saw the highest increase in the number of new cases. The figure stood at 99.

On Wednesday, there are three cases reported in Goa. All of them have a travel history to other countries.

Madhya Pradesh has 20 cases, one in Ujjain, Shivpuri, and Gwalior, nine in Indore, six in Jabalpur, and two in Bhopal.

37 is the number of cases in Uttar Pradesh with one foreigner and the rest are Indian nationals. King George's Medical University in Lucknow announced that there was a patient confirmed to carry the virus on Wednesday. The man has no travel history and he is a contact transmission case.
