The World Health Organization (WHO) has launched a mobile app (WHOs official coronavirus app) to provide the latest COVID-19 guidance and updates. Titled the WHO COVID-19 update, the app provides “reliable” information about the virus from health experts. However, it does not offer features including contact tracing that are quite common among applications released by many governments worldwide. WHO initially brought its coronavirus-focused mobile app in April which was pulled from the App Store shortly after release because it was not for public availability.
WHOs official coronavirus app is available once again: Here is all you need to know COVID-19 Updates
As reported by Android Police, the WHO COVID-19 update app (WHOs official coronavirus app) works similarly to the original mobile app released by the Public Health Agency earlier this year. It is designed more like a general-purpose app to limit the spread of COVID-19 by providing security advice and updated information.
How the WHO COVID-19 Updates app works
Once the app gets your location, it can show you the latest COVID-related news and updates pertaining to your region. The home screen of the app shows a count of the number of coronavirus cases in your country and globally. The app can also send you real-time notifications on the latest updates.
The app also features a Check-Up tab featuring a list of COVID-19 related symptoms, both serious and mild. The Learn tab in the app also advises you on travel-related updates. Scrolling down, you can see a list of basic hygiene practices that can be taken care of to reduce the chances of catching the virus.
Common myths and answers around the COVID-19 virus can also be found in the app. Finally, there’s a link where you can donate to the COVID-19 Response Fund.
How to get the app? (WHOs official coronavirus app)
Unless you’re in Nigeria, you will not find the WHO COVID-19 Updates app on the Google Play Store. The app, however, works with country-specific data in most regions. WHO plans to launch the app in other regions too later, but if you want to try it now, you can find the app’s APK on APK Mirror and can sideload it from there.
