The Coronavirus is spreading all across the world with outbreaks worsening especially in the US, Italy, and Iran. And with the rapid outbreaks, there is also a spread of misinformation surrounding the pandemic. In an effort to ensure safety and keep the masses informed, the WHO has now introduced a messaging service on WhatsApp to reach people in an easier and much effective manner. This easy-to-use messaging service is essentially a chatbox and has a potential of reaching over 2 billion people while enabling WHO to provide information and updates directly into the hands of those who need them.
