If you do not wait for the message to end and want to connect to the caller immediately, there is a way out.

The Indian government has ordered all telecommunications operators to set a 30-second audio clip as the default caller tune for their subscribers. The caller tune aims to raise awareness of coronavirus and inform users of measures to prevent them from becoming victims or spreading the deadly disease.

The call will not be connected until the 30-second audio clip has finished playing. However, users have not appreciated the fact that the caller melody plays every time they dial a number and creates obstacles in an emergency. Unlike Airtel and some other telecommunications companies, Jio connects the call while triggering the coronavirus alarm.

If you do not wait for the message to end and want to connect to the caller immediately, there is a way out.

To skip the Corona Virus message from Airtel, Vodafone-Idea, Jio, and other telecommunications operators:

  • Dial the number.
  • Wait for the message to start, then tap 1.
  • After pressing 1, you will be forwarded to the original caller melody when the call is made.

There is currently no way to prevent the message from being repeated each time you call. This means that users must follow the steps above to skip the Coronavirus warning message.

The 30-second audible alarm sounds with a coughing sound, followed by a message asking people to take precautions, such as washing hands with soap, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. In addition, users can reach the nearest healthcare facility or call the hotline number 011-23978046 for more information.

We do not recommend our readers to skip the Coronavirus warning message and only perform the above steps in an emergency.
