World Health Organization (WHO) has launched a mobile application to deliver the latest COVID-19 guidance and updates.

Titled WHO COVID-19 Updates, the app provides “trusted” information about the virus from health experts.

It though doesn’t offer features including contact tracing that is quite common among the apps released by several governments across the globe.

WHO primarily brought its coronavirus-focussed mobile app in April that it pulled from app stores shortly after release as it wasn’t meant for public availability.

The WHO COVID-19 Updates app offers the latest local news and information and real-time notifications, based on your location. It shows national and global cases count on the home screen to let people keep a track of the coronavirus outbreak.

You can also scroll down to see all the basic hygiene practices. The app also provides you with a link to let you donate to WHO’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
