List of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Helpline numbers in States and Union Territories of India
Are you looking for the contact helpline numbers in your city or state in India for guidance on Coronavirus (COVID-19)? This article gives a Statewise list of the Helpline numbers in India to be contacted by those who wish to have their queries answered on coronavirus or seek medical help.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India has taken proactive steps to issue guidelines and travel advisories as well as provide updates on the number of people in India affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19). Helpline contact numbers and an email ID has also been set up so that people can have their queries answered by health experts, get medical help quickly if required, and not needlessly panic and spread rumours and misinformation. Remember, too, your mother's scoldings!
This article provides a list of the addresses and contact numbers of the Directorate of Health Services in various States of India as per the details sourced from the official websites. Some of them have also set up their own Helpline contact numbers for the public. Wherever the Helpline number is not known or has not been officially provided by the State Govt., there only the address and/or contact information/ website of the Health Department has been provided.
India National Helpline Number for Coronavirus: 104 – this is the Health Advisory Call Center (HACC) / +91-11-23978046. Additional Toll-free Helpline numbers have been launched on 15th March 2020: 1075 and 1800-112-545.

Coronavirus masksPlease do not needlessly buy, hoard masks and wear them when not really required. A shortage of masks for those who really need them will create a problem. Wear a mask only if you show any of the symptoms, are taking care of a patient or are a COVID-19 patient suspected or confirmed to be having it. Please refer to the advisory as depicted in the image below-

Also, keep in mind that if at all you do wear the blue and white surgical masks that are available at your local pharmacist: (a) they may just keep out dust, nothing more; (b) they should be worn the right way. I have seen people wearing the blue/green masks back to front. Note that the blue/green side should be on the outside and the white one on the inner side. It is the white side that contains the filters and the blue side that stops germs from exiting out and spreading around. Similarly, check with the pharmacist details of the type of mask that you purchase, and how to wear it so that you don't wear it the wrong way. There are, for example, yellow masks with 'FPP' printed on them. The 'FPP' means 'filtering face piece' and the number against it, namely 1,2,3 indicates its rating. These masks may generally be worn by people who require high levels of respiratory protection. I repeat - don't unnecessarily buy such type or any other type of mask unless really required. You can always cover your nose and mouth with a cloth while travelling/moving around in a crowded space. Don't waste masks, please.
