We know that Nepal Government has not been able to take proper decisions in this pandemic period but this app is one of the effective ways to make people aware of the Coronavirus as the app has various important features. The COVID-19 self-assessment test helps people to check for the virus and then take steps accordingly to its results. ‘Find nearest health facility’ feature helps users to find the nearest health facilities location. Likewise, there is an FAQ option where we can know about the frequently asked questions and their answers.
Thus, we should appreciate Nepal Government’s effort for this approach.
