Corona Virus - COVID 19 - 

Sir/ Mam, as you are all aware on how the Corona Virus has infected millions across the globe and how business and economy of various  countries are suffering. Back in India we are on the verge of a outbreak which the Govt. is trying hard to stop by a lockdown. It is being projected that if we fail to control this we will be having over a million cases in India in next 15 days. 
For the same testing is very critical and hence govt is opening up testing at Pvt labs too. The speculation is that the Pvt. test will cost INR 4500. That is way too much for a poor & middle class persons family to test. So a family of 4 will spend 18,000 INR on this test. Does this feel affordable ?

The basic of any predictions is the number of tests / samples the govt collects. At present we have tested only 15,700 odd people in a country of 1.37 Billion who have undergone this test. We are not only risking it but if a community catches virus or infection Corona will be out of control and will create pressure on govt. hospitals (which are providing testing free) hence the need and request  for free corona testing only after doctors advise be made available for free in Pvt. hospitals / Clinics. 

I would urge the Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi Ji to please take this request on war footing and help before it’s late. 

Regards,

A concerned Indian citizen.
