With the coronavirus pandemic spreading with each passing day, it has become ever more important for the government to make sound decisions to curb the spread of the virus.
Earlier, the government launched a chatbot to address queries relating to the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
“Our team wanted to build an effective way to get information out to Pakistanis. We’ve launched a chatbot to address common concerns on Coronavirus. You can find labs near you and even do a quick test to assess your risk of Coronavirus. Please try it out!” Aidrus wrote on social media.
