Online Coronavirus (Covid19) Test in English and Persian
Dealing with Coronavirus in Iran
With hospitals across the country filled with patients, it is neither wise nor recommended to go to a hospital if you feel like you may have contracted the so-called Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19).
This move is especially important when one can take a simple online self-assessment test instead of going to a medical centre or hospital.
In order to reduce the number of unnecessary referrals to hospitals, Iran has launched an online questionnaire both in Farsi and English for those who worry they might have contracted the virus.
Given the similarities of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to those of other common respiratory diseases like the common cold in the mildest of cases, if you are having symptoms like a dry cough or runny nose, you can take this quick online test which has been prepared by the Medical Council of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iranian Red Crescent Society.
Millions of people in Iran have already taken the test, and the health ministry urges others to do the same instead of going to medical centres.
You can take the simple test at “test.corona.ir” or by clicking here.
If you happen to test positive for the virus, please do refer to a medical centre. Please be advised that under the plan approved by the Iranian president, the treatment of foreign nationals for coronavirus will be free of charge. However, if you have private medical insurance from abroad, please contact your provider who will advise you about which local hospital will be able to assist you.
