As the coronavirus cases are rapidly spreading in India, the government is taking necessary action to curb the spread of the deadly pandemic. The confirmed COVID-19 cases in India rapidly increased to more than 7,500 in a matter of few days while at least 240 people have reportedly succumbed to the virus.

The fear of community spread still looms large and to tackle that the Indian government imposed a nation wide lock down and established 52 testing centres spread all over the country.

These centres are for everyone to get tested, get quarantined and get the necessary treatment if they showcase any symptoms. Here is a list of all the government designated centres according to the Indian council of medical research.
