Telemedicine for Coronavirus Management
The whole world is suffering from the Covid-19 outbreak. As at today, the total number of deaths due to the novel coronavirus have passed 100,000. We keep hearing the "stay at Home" mantra from government and health officials. However, if anyone got any symptoms suggestive of Covid-19, how can he/she get a medical opinion?

That is where the field of Telemedicine can come to help. Telemedicine services will connect people with the doctors, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers to sort out doubts and to guide them to correct places.

MyDoctor has come up with a solution for Covid-19 in Sri Lanka in partnership with Dialog Axiata PLC, and Wavenet Int. to cater the national need via 1390 (Toll Free) Hotline and MyDoctor App (Free Video Consultation).
