Frequently Asked Questions
How Does the Covid virus spread?
The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
What Should I do if I get sick or someone in my house get sick?
Most people who get COVID-19 will be able to recover at home. CDC has directions for people who are recovering at home and their caregivers, including:
Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care or opt for Covid Home isolation Plan with medical advice in case of very mild/pre-symptomatic/asymptomatic COVID-19 cases
Use a separate room and bathroom for sick household members (if possible).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
Provide your sick household member with clean disposable facemasks to wear at home, if available, to help prevent spreading COVID-19 to others.
Clean the sick room and bathroom, as needed, to avoid unnecessary contact with the sick person.
What is Contact Tracing?
Contact tracing is used by health departments to prevent the spread of infectious disease. It involves identifying people who have an infectious disease (cases) and their contacts (people who may have been exposed) and working with them to interrupt disease transmission. For COVID-19, this includes asking cases to isolate and contacts to quarantine at home voluntarily.

Jehangir Hospital in Pune has been delivering quality healthcare services for more than 75 years. With over 400 consultants on board, Jehangir Hospital delivers world-class healthcare services across 30 specialities.
Jehangir Hospital was established in 1946. Today, 70 years in the service of providing quality healthcare with commitment and distinction, Jehangir Hospital holds a steadfast position of trust and respect in the hearts and minds of the people it serves. It is an institution renowned for its medical excellence, the dedication of its consultants and the care and compassion of its staff.
Jehangir Hospital began as Jehangir Nursing Home when its founders, Sir Cowasji Jehangir and Lady Hirabai Jehangir, invited the eminent Dr. Eduljee H. Coyaji to set up a facility that could offer personalized care of high quality at an affordable price to the people of Poona. On the 6th of February, 1946, with only a few beds, it became the city's first significant private hospital. Soon Jehangir Nursing Home had a bed strength of 60. It also added facilities to become the first professionally run hospital kitchen along with a linen department. As patient demand increased, so did the number of beds and facilities.
In 1998, Jehangir Hospital equipped with 350 beds, tied up with the Apollo Hospitals Group to assist in managing and modernizing the hospital. The Jehangir Hospital - Apollo Hospitals Group synergy thus provides the best outcome for the patients: superior technology and medical skill combined with quality patient care. Since 2002, Jehangir Hospital has gone from a 180 bed hospital to a 350 bed multispecialty tertiary care hospital.
