Praava Health has launched an online Covid-19 self-assessment tool, a Facebook Chatbot, and a dedicated Covid-19 Webpage in response to the global coronavirus pandemic.
These services are meant to help patients navigate the pandemic, get clarity on confusions, and access to local and international resources on Covid-19, reads a press release on Sunday.
"As physicians, we have noticed that people have a lot of confusion and fear about Covid-19," said Dr Paramaita Karim, Praava's Senior Family Doctor.
"Praava's self-assessment tool has been designed to minimise anxiety and clarify any confusion our patients are facing. The tool provides information catering to each individual based on answers provided by patients, along with easy-to-understand explanations about what they can do to keep healthy and take care of themselves," she said.
Using the self-assessment tool, people can answer a few simple questions about their symptoms, underlying health conditions, and any possible exposures to Covid-19, the press statement reads.
The tool is designed to help address the current uncertainty about what someone should do based on their risk and potentially help alleviate undue stress on the already overburdened healthcare system.
Through Praava Health's Facebook Chatbot, people can get answers to any Covid-19 related questions that they may have.
It can help to clarify common myths regarding Covid-19 and its symptoms, how to stay safe, what services Praava is offering during this time, frequently asked questions, in line with a live chat to reach a doctor directly.
Praava Health has also launched a dedicated Covid-19 webpage to raise awareness about the pandemic, how to protect oneself against the spread of disease, and generally to keep people up-to-date on the fast-moving situation in Bangladesh.
The self-assessment tool and Facebook Chatbot is available on the following webpages:
