New Delhi: To take some load off the health sector, the government has issued telemedicine guidelines which won't require you to physically visit a doctor for a check-up. You can do it over a phone call, or text or WhatsApp messages.

The notification says, 'Disasters and pandemics pose unique challenges to providing health care.

A telemedicine visit can be conducted without exposing staff to viruses/infections in the times of such outbreaks.
