The Indian government has ordered all telecom operators to set a 30-second audio clip as a default caller tune for their subscribers. The caller tune aims at spreading awareness about coronavirus and informs users about taking measures to avoid being a victim or spread the deadly disease.
How to skip the coronavirus message on Airtel, Vodafone-Idea, Jio and other telecom operators:
- Dial the number
- Wait for the message to begin and then tap 1.
- After pressing 1, you will be redirected to the original caller tune as the call connects.
The 30-second audio alert comes with a coughing sound, followed by a message that informs people to take precautionary measures like washing hands with soap to avoid spreading coronavirus. Further, users can reach out to the nearest health facility or dial the helpline number 011-23978046 to get more details.
