CORONAVIRUS – Support Information YOU MUST Have

There is a lot of information regarding the Coronavirus, with much of it being updated or revised by the day. This can be quite confusing and overwhelming. Here we have collated state-specific telephone numbers in order for you to obtain the most up-to-date information.

In addition to these phone numbers, if you suspect you have Coronavirus, you can also visit your local GP, hospital, or fever clinic, however, it is vital to call them ahead of time to discuss special measures to ensure no other patients or staff become infected.

Please note, the non-hospital testing facilities listed here will change quite regularly, according to the demand. In some of these cases, patients will also need a pathology Request Form from their doctor in order for a test to be conducted.
