COVID-19 Information Centre: Your Health, Our Priority
Ministry of Health of Prevention launched an awareness section on their website. The section titled, ‘Your Health, Our Priority’ publishes information about COVID-19, its prevention and treatment. It also has a database of recommendations, precautions and guidelines from World Health Organisation (WHO).
There are answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about COVID-19 in five languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, Farsi and Urdu. There is a link to interact with the ‘Virtual Doctor’, a chatbot that assesses the health condition of the enquirer based on the answers it receives. If the chatbot deduces that the enquirer may have COVID-19, it will connect him/her to a doctor through the same service.
The awareness section does not deal with emergency cases. For emergencies, please contact the emergency helplines for COVID-19.
