To prevent coronavirus spreading in India if it enters and gets established the only way is to prevent flu like illness by adopting to Universal precautions.
In India a doctor seeing patients have a large number pf them waiting outside his chamber and are likely to get cross infection of flu or corona like illness.
Therefore, teleconsultation in cases of respiratory tract infections should be permitted.
It can be in the form of a video consultation so that the patient doctor relationship is established.
In cases of flu it is easy to diagnose patients who require admission as they will be breathless. Breathlessness can easily be tackled on video consultation.
