The recent events in the world have taken us all by surprise. A pandemic broke through last year followed by a global lockdown. Working from home became a norm and the only people allowed to travel were people associated with health care and providing essential food items. We learnt the new concept of wearing masks as the world scrambled along to try and find a vaccine for the virus that changed how we perceived everything- SARS-CoV, commonly known as Covid. Slowly but surely, things started opening up. Awareness to avoid crowds and use sanitizers and wear masks are constantly being spread. In such situations, people are more and more getting wary of hospitals and clinics. Many labs and clinics recognized this and wanted to step in and help people conduct tests with more comfort and security. Thus the idea of doorstep testing is born. They realized that anything concerning one’s health cannot take a backseat even if we were in the middle of a global pandemic. This is why doorstep testing became the new normal.If you haven’t availed it, you must read these benefits of at-home diagnostic testing explained by Dr. Srinivas Neela, Director & CEO, BookMyDiagnostic.
