Reliance Jio has launched a service that is best needed at this hour. Jio has enabled health-care at home on its MyJioApp with Symptom Checker. Users can check their symptoms right on their mobile & prevent unnecessary pressure on the medical system, it also provides real-time updates & info on the Covid-19 situation. This is part of Jio’s #CoronaHaaregaIndiaJeetega campaign. Another welcome aspect of this feature is that Jio has opened up the MyJio app for non-Jio customers as well, which means that anyone can download the MyJio app and access this self-diagnosis tool and other features irrespective of who your mobile service provider is.
The new Coronavirus testing tool comes with a bunch of features. It is available to all users across India, guides on how to work from home, learn from home, how to get medical consultation at home via digital tools, the list of test centers across all states in India, the updated statistics of the Coronavirus spread around the world and in India as well as access to answers for common questions about the COVID-19 spread and the helpline details for all regions.
The symptom checker tool helps by starting off with a set of questions. The first set of questions includes the gender, age group, and the list of existing health conditions that include asthma, chronic lung disease, diabetes, heart diseases or if the person taking this test is pregnant. Then there are specific questions on your travel for the past 14 days to certain countries including China, Italy, Spain, Iran, or even larger regions in Europe, Middle East of Southeast Asia. The Coronavirus symptom checker then asks you if the test taker or anyone in the test taker’s family has come in contact with anyone who has had a cold, cough, fever or shortness of breath in the past 14 days.
At this point, the Coronavirus symptom checker asks if the test taker has a fever, headache, cough, cold, sore throat, shortness of breath and coarseness in the voice. Post this, the MyJio Coronavirus Symptom Checker tool provides a risk analysis of how likely you may be to be catching the Coronavirus infection, or if the symptoms already indicate something amiss.
The MyJio App also has the list of test centers, as shared by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and this is available for all states and regions in India. The test center list keeps getting updated and any new changes will be reflected in the list for each state or region.
