On March 11th, 2020, the World Health Organization officially characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic. As per the World Health Organization, We have never before seen a pandemic sparked by a coronavirus. This is the first pandemic caused by a coronavirus.

COVID-19 is an outbreak spreading rapidly across the globe and gripping fear of many human beings. As COVID-19 spreads around the world, India reported the first case of COVID-19 on 30 January 2020.At present, we are in the most crucial phase of the transmission of the disease. According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the country is in the second stage of transmissions, i.e. local transmission.

However there have been cases of people who tested positive where patient was not exposed to any infected person or one who has travelled to any of the affected countries. This has raised fears of Community transmission. Community spread will expose the virus to a large number of people rapidly.

It is vital to track down potential positive cases to try to stay one step ahead of the virus. Also, test every suspected case of COVID-19 as rightly stated by WHO that a fire cannot be fought blindfolded

People in close contact with someone who is infected with the virus are at a risk of infecting themselves and further infecting others without their knowledge. This is where Contact tracing plays a pivotal role to curb the spread of the deadly COVID-19.

This is to urge the Government of India and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to scale-up aggressive measures to combat COVID-19.

I urge you to Sign my petition. Together WE shall

Request the Government of India and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to

1. Bring in an extensive and effective contact tracing programme. This will help to identify and follow the chain of virus from one person to the next, identifying and isolating those people and all their close contacts before they can spread the virus further.
2. Set up a specialized center to handle tracing of close contacts.
3. Test every suspected case of COVID-19

This is very important to flatten the curve and to not overwhelm the hospitals.

Save Humanity.
