Aga Khan University launches CoronaCheck self-screening app


The Aga Khan University has launched a new mobile application, ‘CoronaCheck’, enabling people to safely evaluate coronavirus symptoms with an in-home screening tool of the application.

The application also provides guidelines for people to look after themselves if they are having any sort of symptoms of the highly contagious disease.

How does it work?

According to an official statement, the app uses an interactive chatbot, driven by artificial intelligence, which allows users to understand their symptoms and recognise whether they may have contracted COVID-19 or not. With the app providing help promptly, it also aims to identify potential coronavirus carriers and limit their risk of transmission. By reducing the need for suspected patients to visit hospitals for screening, the app will also contribute to curb the burden on the healthcare system and ensure care for those most in need.

The app ‘CoronaCheck’ also seeks to tackle myths and misconceptions by featuring educational videos in Urdu, to combat the increasing amount of unverified information circulating on social media platforms. It also includes authentic information on best practices to protect oneself from infection, advice on self-assessment, and precautions and guidance on physical distancing recommended by the World Health Organisation and national health ministries.
