Facts not fiction: COVID-19 WhatsApp alerts
Knowing and sharing the facts - and just the facts - can be a vital tool for keeping yourself and your community safe
Khartoum -- In the fight against misinformation, UNDP, UNICEF and WHO are calling on all WhatsApp users in Sudan to stay informed with COVID-19 WhatsApp Arabic and English alerts.
COVID-19 can be deadly, and alongside essential safe hygiene and physical distancing efforts, knowing and sharing the facts - and just the facts - can be a vital tool for keeping yourself and your community safe.
While everyone’s first source for information should be the Federal Ministry of Health, COVID-19 WhatsApp alerts provide fast, free and easy access to the latest global COVID-19 information from WHO.
With advice on staying safe, frequently asked questions, tips for protecting yourself and others, the latest news and case numbers – and easy messages to “forward” and share – the alerts are a helpful addition toFederal Ministry of Health advice.
Simply send "مرحبا" or “hi” to +41 22 501 70 23 on WhatsApp to get the latest COVID-19 advice and check your facts.
The COVID-19 WhatsApp alerts system has been developed globally by WHO, UNICEF and UNDP in partnership with WhatsApp.
