KlinicApp is now doing home tests for coronavirus (COVID-19) in Mumbai, the service is being provided in tie-ups with govt approved labs like Thyrocare and Metropolis.

On the announcement, Satkam Divya, CEO, KlinicApp shared, “At KlinicApp, we are fully committed in the fight against COVID-19 and together help the nation come out of this difficult situation. He adds KlinicApp is pioneering innovation in the field of e- diagnostics in India and values the importance of embracing change in the rapidly evolving healthcare technology scenario.  KlinicApp is focussed on adding / scaling up its capacity in all major cities, to a sufficient number of tests per day. The phlebotomists fleet has been given extensive training for home sample collection and has been provided a one-time use safety suit (personal protective equipment) and gears for their safety.

The tests are done only on doctor’s prescriptions. Results are generally available within 48 hrs. A person is considered to be at risk of having COVID-19 if they have travelled to an area with ongoing community transmission in the last 14 days or have had close contact with an infected person. Common key indicators include fever, coughing, and shortness of breath. Other possible indicators include fatigue, myalgia, anorexia, sputum production, and sore throat.

KlinicApp has also released prevention suggestions that include good hygiene, such as washing hands when appropriate, avoiding touching the eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands, coughing / sneezing into a tissue and putting the tissue directly into a dustbin and (for those who may already have the infection) wearing a surgical mask in public. Social distancing measures are also recommended to prevent transmission.

To book the COVID-19 detection test one can simply call on 8929176409, the test will cost Rs 4500 as per ICMR guidelines.
