The government was forced to impose a blanked lockdown all over India in order to minimise the commotion and gathering at public places to counter the Covid-19 threat. As such, the Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio has stepped up to serve the users in a far more effective way.
It has entered a partnership with Microsoft to come up for a tool which will check the symptoms of a user to figure out if the person should be tested for Covid-19. This tool, which is called Coronavirus – info & tools, is now made available as a part of the MyJio app on both Android and iOS platforms.
The symptoms checking tool takes a log of health inputs from the user, and this ranges from travel history to the severity of flu-like symptoms, and then proceeds to come with a report which determines if the user should pay a visit to the hospital or the lab for some sort of test.
This tool also claims that it will be to figure out if the user has contracted coronavirus on the basis of data which it has logged in. It has all the guidelines from WHO and the Indian government on what the user should follow for the protection against the virus, which is highly contagious.
How to use the tool?
In order to use the tool, the user has to tap on the banner which says: #CoronaHaaregaIndiaJeetega. Following this, the user will be taken to a section inside the MyJio app where the tool will be available.
Hence, now before the user begins with the process, there is some important information on coronavirus and Covid-19. There is also a disclaimer with and symptoms checker which has a number of profiles for whom this test is for – for yourself’, parent’, spouse’, child’, and someone else.’
Once this is confirmed, there will be a series of questions which will be posed with multiple options. At the end of the checking procedure, the user will get a report.
The MyJio app also has the information of the test centres for Covid-19 across India. There is also a section which gives information about the current active cases, cured cases, and the patients who succumbed to the disease caused by the pandemic.
