Access Facts About Coronavirus Through WhatsApp Messaging Service
Get updated with the fact about Coronavirus through social media.
In order to make facts regarding COVID-19 accessible to government authorities, health professionals, reporters and the general public, the World Health Organization (WHO) has put up a system in place to answer any questions regarding the novel coronavirus and current updates and developments on this pandemic.
WhatsApp, owned by the technology giant Facebook, is one of the most popular apps in the world when it comes to keeping in touch with people from tour personal and/or professional lives.
WHO plans to raise awareness amongst people regarding the possible dangers of following news sites and digital communities that share stories without confirming anything from official sources. In the case of this pandemic, everyone should follow WHO on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and/or WhatsApp so that they have the right information.

With a reach of 2 billion people in the world, WhatsApp has no equal for the experts at WHO who believe that the public should be able to exercise their right to information, and, in this regard, the right to "authentic" information.
