Minister of State (MoS) for Health and Family Welfare Ashwini Kumar Choubey on Tuesday had said that government has been taking all measures to monitor the situation in view of coronavirus outbreak.

He had said the screening of passengers has been initiated at all 21 airports and universal screening has been made mandatory for all flights from China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.
