The messaging service, which WHO hopes will reach 2 billion people world over, enables users to get information on the pandemic directly on their phones.

“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,” WHO stated.

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