Mumbai doctors answer queries on coronavirus

The entire country is suffering under the fangs of coronavirus. In India, Maharashtra witnessed the highest number of COVID-19 cases. The number of COVID-19 cases reached to 47 on Thursday with two women tested positive for this virus.

A panic environment is created in the world due to this virus and people are getting scared even with minor symptoms like cold or cough. Many are rushing to the hospitals to check whether they are infected with the coronavirus.

As a result, the patients and other suspects who actually need attention are getting ignored and their treatment is getting delayed.

To prevent the unnecessary rush in hospitals and to eliminate fears of the people, a group of Mumbai doctors set up helpline numbers.


People can call them from 8:00 am to 11:00 p.m. and clarify their doubts on COVID-19. They should explain their symptoms to the doctors and get their suggestions and guidance.

The initiative that was started in this month had an overwhelming response. The phones of the doctors have been buzzing without gap during the given slot.

This phone service is free, and people can send their name and age on WhatsApp to the doctor they want to speak to. The doctors will try to solve the query on WhatsApp. If needed, calls are allowed.

This free service helps reduce the burden of doctors and other healthcare workers in hospitals.
