With the advancement of technology that keeps people virtually connected, the World Health Organization is using this advantage to raise awareness among people around the world. The WHO has created a chatbot with the collaboration of the WhatsApp platform. This initiative came as a step from WhatsApp, as many have claimed that this application is responsible for spreading false hoaxes.
The chatbot works in straightforward steps. It sends an automated message that responds to the user in order to answer the most frequent questions asked about COVID-19. Also, it gives an optional feature to donate for WHO to continue their efforts in fighting the coronavirus. People can access the chatbot by following this link on their phones.
Awareness is the first-line defense to face any disease. Since the cure is not discovered, the best thing to do during this time is to follow the steps of prevention to minimize the possibility of getting infected.
