We are reproducing this press statement of WeChat in public interest.
”With the rising spread of the disease Swine Flu, all the national health and governing bodies and non-profit organisations are working towards keeping the citizens of the country safe and aware about the disease. Since lack of proper information during the times of spread of an epidemic can cause undue panic, in a bid to keep Indian users aware about the facts, prevention and treatment of Swine flu, WeChat has launched a special Official Account in India called “Swine Flu Help” – powered by Lybrate.
The Official Account features options such as Info, About, Symptoms, Prevention, Treatment which provide all the available information on the disease and its treatment – posted and vetted by doctors on Lybrate platform. Additionally, it also features a ‘Help’ section which allows users to ask questions from doctors, book appointments with them, and even find nearby Government Swine Flu testing and treatment centres.
WeChat being a responsible product has always stepped forward in helping and reaching out to the citizens of the nation. In the past, WeChat donated over Rs.12 lakhs to the victims of the Jammu & Kashmir flood. Users can also keep their friends and family updated and aware regarding the latest information and prevention tips about Swine Flu through features such as broadcast message and group chat”.
