Dharamshala: In an effort to bring the latest, authentic information on Coronavirus and to curb fake news dissemination, the Government of India’s Ministry of Health and MyGov together with WhatsApp, have launched a helpline chatbot – called MyGov Corona Helpdesk.
WhatsApp users across India can reach out to the Ministry of Health on +91 9013151515 for credible information on Coronavirus, experts advice and to verify any uncertain information on precautionary measures or treatment practices.
To connect with the MyGov Corona Helpdesk, save the WhatsApp number on phone, and start a chat by typing “Hi”.
The bot will instantly respond with all the latest news and information on coronavirus including details on symptoms and how people can protect themselves and others.
Last week, the World Health Organization launched the WHO Health Alerts chatbot via WhatsApp in Arabic, English, French and Spanish to empower the billions of people around the world with accurate health information related to the coronavirus.
