Coronavirus information is everywhere online, which means there's still quite a large amount of misinformation coming with it. To battle this misinformation, the World Health Organization is developing their own app.

Coronavirus app is being developed by WHO, here's why you'll need it 01 |

According to a report by Reuters, the WHO is currently in the middle of developing a coronavirus app that will provide all that download it legitimate information regarding COVID-19. The idea behind the app is to provide education on the virus for people (especially in under-resourced countries) who might not have the resources to figure out if they have COVID-19, or if they have the symptoms.

The app will ask users a series of questions about their symptoms and then provide guidance for what that person should do next. The app is also rumored to have Bluetooth-based contact tracing, according to an official who spoke to Reuters. The app will apparently be released in about a month, and when it is, I'll be sure to update you with another post.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
