As of March 12, 2020, nearly 129,296 people have been affected and 4,749 people lost their lives due to this deadly virus. To spread awareness, various awareness programs have been conducted across the world including India.

Aimed at spreading awareness, the 30-second audio explains the important measures to avoid getting infected by Coronavirus. Once the audio gets connected, the call will be connected. However, some of the users annoyed with this move as the caller tune plays every time when they dial a number and creates an obstacle in case of emergencies. But, there are ways to stop the Coronavirus caller tune.

Basic protective measures to avoid Coronavirus from spreading:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap
  • Use tissue paper while sneezing and coughing
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth without washing your hands
  • Maintain 3 feet distance between yourself and the people who are coughing or sneezing
  • Visit the nearby health centre if you have fever, cough or difficulty in breathing
