Now, Evaluate Your risk To Covid-19 With Reliance Jio App

With misinformation spreading faster than the virus itself, Reliance Jio has a solution. The telecom operator has launched a feature of its app that seeks to rein in fake news, offering verified information to users about Covid-19.

This tool, located under the hamburger button of the app, offers a list of helpful options which users can benefit from. As soon as you click on ‘coronavirus info & tool’, you will be greeted with a message that says: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus that had not been previously identified in humans. Please use the below options to learn more about the disease and keep your self-update.

For instance, by choosing symptom checker, users will be asked to fill a simple questionnaire which will tell them what their chances could be of contracting the virus.

In addition to updating useful statistics around the spread of Covid-19, including the total number of cases in India, its FAQ section offers users all the information available about the disease. It also comes with helpline numbers of all the states in India.

According to the company, this information is provided by qualified medical practitioners.

As part of Reliance’s #CoronaHaaregaIndiaJeetega initiative, the company has also rolled out a ‘work from home’ pack for Rs 251 for remote workers. Additionally, it has also teamed up with Microsoft Teams to combine its digital capabilities with the professional messaging platform.

Furthermore, it had also announced the launch of a messaging bot for MyGov Corona Helpdesk through its subsidiary Jio Haptik.
