The federal government has launched a WhatsApp Helpline in seven languages to provide necessary information regarding Coronavirus across the Country. The helpline service has been started in English, Urdu, Punjabi, Pushto, Sindhi, Balochi and Kashmiri languages. The conversation would be through a Chatbot which will provide all the necessary information on COVID-19 in Pakistan.


By sending a Whatsapp message on 092-300-111-1166, the citizens will be able to get the latest updates about the Coronavirus and information about the nearby laboratory for the Corona test.

The COVID-19 WhatsApp Helpline is an important step by the government to provide authentic information to the people of Pakistan.

Dr Zafar Mirza, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister of Pakistan on Health said that “During this challenging time it is vitally important that people get accurate, timely and official answers to questions they have about COVID-19 and its impact on their families and communities,”

Matt Idema, THE COO of WhatsApp said that “At difficult times like these, people use WhatsApp more than ever to connect with and support their friends, family, and communities. We are pleased to be able to provide the Pakistan Ministry of National Health Services with the communications tools to help them respond to citizens’ questions about the virus with reliable, timely health advice, in order to keep people safe,”
