A New Website Is Helping Nigerians Check If They Have Coronavirus

By Aisha Salaudeen

While Nigeria has fewer confirmed cases of coronavirus than some other countries in Africa, it’s not taking any chances.

A new website is helping NIgerians find out whether they’re at risk of Covid-19.
Created through a partnership between the Wellbeing Foundation and PocketPatientMD, the site will determine if a person needs to visit a coronavirus test center based on a series of questions.
The Wellbeing Foundation works with mothers and midwives across the country to ensure adequate maternal and newborn health, while PocketPatientMD is a platform that allows patients and physicians to manage their medical records digitally.
