A general practitioner can even send an ambulance to the suspect's home for sampling if he sees the need, the government's coronavirus briefing website said Wednesday.

As they write, we are in the phase of coronavirus epidemic when anyone can be infected anywhere. In other words, the number of actual infected can be much higher than the number of people who have been identified by the laboratory test because the virus is already spreading through a group infection.
