How To Find COVID-19 Testing Centers Using Google Apps

While searching on Google Assistant, you will be able to see 'Testing' tab on the search results page that will show you a list of testing labs nearby with the key details and guidance that you should follow before using the service. It also shows the latest COVID-19-related updates and news.

Likewise, on using Google Maps and Google Search to search for testing centers, you will get results about testing centers near you. The difference is that the same will be displayed as regular search results and not under the specific 'Testing' tab. Notably, all these services will let you know if the testing center is run by the government or a private entity.

Currently, Google has teamed up with over 700 testing labs and centers across 300 cities to be displayed on its Search, Maps, and Assistant apps. And, it will be working with authorities to add more testing centers across the country. For the same, Google is working closely with the Indian Council of Medical Research and MyGov.

 

Prior to this, Google Assistant got the COVID-19 alert card snapshot that provides information on the pandemic outbreak. Also, the central government has also introduced the Aarogya Setu app to provide information related to COVID-19.
