Coronavirus: Nearly 400 queries in Srinagar control room in 24 hrs

About 400 calls, including domestic and international, were made and received by a round-the-clock control room established in Srinagar as part of arrangements put in place to prevent spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), an official said here on Tuesday.
He said while most of these calls were dialled out from the control room, a significant number of these calls were those which were received at the control room. “The calls dialled out from the control room included those made to Srinagar citizens based outside India. “The calls were made to those in the most affected countries in particular — noting important details and giving relevant advice,” he said.
He said the control room also handled technical calls thanks to two doctors – working in shifts. “The doctor on night shift last night attended tens of calls made to seek relevant medical and technical advice,” he said.
