Here's some vital information for those who believe that they should get a computerized tomography scan or CT scan done just because they tested positive. 

According to AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria, "Doing will do more harm than good. In the long run, the person can risk getting cancer." 

"There is no need to get a CT scan done, especially if you have a mild illness, you are in home isolation and if your saturation is fine. If we get one CT scan done, it is equivalent to 300-400 chest X-Rays," he said.
