New Delhi, March 21 (IANS) The Indian government has launched a WhatsApp chatbot called ‘MyGov Corona Helpdesk’ to help address queries around the coronavirus pandemic.

The chatbot has been developed and implemented by Jio Haptik Technologies Limited, a conversational AI platform and a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL).

With WhatsApp user base in India crossing over 400 million, this is a medium to route basic hygiene practices around the virus, the company said in a statement.

One can access the chatbot by sending a Whatsapp message to the number +91 9013151515.
