Coronavirus: Local WhatsApp system in South Africa to be used globally by WHO
With the coronavirus pandemic that has hit hard across the world, different measures are being deployed to help counter the continued spread and this is evident in South Africa where a surprisingly new technique has emerged. The new method which uses local WhatsApp system has proved to be very successful and promising indeed thereby prompting its implementation across the globe.
With such a bright idea, the WHO hopes to reach a toll of 50 million people and yet so far this seems like a rather possible target to hit with an already 10 million people reached since just 6 days ago when it was launched.
Well, let’s see how helpful this is … as the virus continues to ravage across Europe, the WHO feels that direct interaction with the people is key to the reduction of the spread, therefore, making this just the perfect approach for such a pandemic.
But one may wonder how this works? ok, it majorly sensitizes the people at individual levels through the use of artificial intelligence (AI) which according to Bloomberg, gives relevant and important information concerning the virus. This provides details such as the symptoms so one can be kept at bay on whether he or she might be infected and interestingly it further notifies the individual on just the right place to get treatment.
So far this seems like just the miracle we all needed but we hope it fetches the best results.
