The number of Coronavirus cases is apparently increasing in Pakistan, as authorities have announced closure of schools for two months and advised people to limit public gatherings.
The anxiety among the masses is growing whether how to get themselves tested for the novel virus
The government has designated hospitals in each province to conduct tests for the virus and inform people about it.
