WhatsApp users have a new service to get help and advice during the coronavirus crisis. The chat app has teamed up with the World Health Organization (WHO) to launch a messaging service which aims to get the latest information directly into the hands of the people that need it.
WHO says that this new update will provide news and information on coronavirus including details on symptoms and how people can protect themselves and others. It also provides the latest situation reports and numbers in real-time to help government decision-makers protect the health of their populations.
If you think this could be a useful feature then it’s very easy to access it.

WHO wants to use the power of WhatsApp to help spread combat the virus which has infected over 300,000 people and killed more than 13,000 since it was first discovered.
