March 22, 2020

The World Health Organization [WHO] has partnered with WhatsApp to bring facts about Covid-19 to people around the globe, launching an easy to use service which allows people to ask questions via the popular messaging service.

Bernews signed up and tested it out, and found it very simple to use and comprehensive; it presents you with options to get facts and also ask a multitude of questions and get immediate answers.


A statement from the organisation said, “Today, WHO is launching a messaging service with partners WhatsApp and Facebook to keep people safe from coronavirus.

“This easy-to-use messaging service has the potential to reach 2 billion people and enables WHO to get information directly into the hands of the people that need it.

“From government leaders to health workers and family and friends, this messaging service will provide the latest news and information on coronavirus including details on symptoms and how people can protect themselves and others.

“It also provides the latest situation reports and numbers in real time to help government decision-makers protect the health of their populations.

“The service can be accessed through a link that opens a conversation on WhatsApp. Users can simply type “hi” to activate the conversation, prompting a menu of options that can help answer their questions about COVID-19.”

On a related note, the Bermuda Government is running a phone hotline service to provide support to those who may have questions about COVID-19, and you can call 444-2498 between 9am – 9pm to ask questions.
