Seven central teams will visit states and designated airports today to review the end-to-end preparedness for management and control of Novel Coronavirus in India. These airports are New Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Kochi.

The team will consist of a public health expert, a clinician and a microbiologist. The decision was taken by the Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan at a review meeting held in New Delhi.

The Ministry said, the team will also visit the tertiary hospitals attached to the airports for reviewing the isolation wards and availability of Personal Protective Equipment and masks. The team will coordinate with the State Health Secretaries to explore all avenues for further supporting and strengthening the states’ preparedness.


Dr Harsh Vardhan spoke to Chief Minister of Uttarakhand and assured all support for screening at the border with Nepal, where a confirmed Novel Coronavirus case has been reported. He said, he will also write to the Chief Ministers of States requesting their personal intervention to review the State preparedness for control and management of the virus.


A 24x7 National Centre for Disease Control Call Centre - 011 -23978046 has been made operational. The Call Centre will monitor the list of contacts furnished by the Ministry of External Affairs, provide details of district and state surveillance officers and in case of any clinical query, direct the concerned to the relevant Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme officer.
