Two students of the sixth year of the Banja Luka School of Medicine, Milica Malesevic and Igor Lepir, have created an interactive Viber application, so called chat bot, to provide citizens with all the necessary information on coronavirus and COVID-19.

The chat bot will enable citizens to check symptoms, get instructions on steps they need to take in line with competent institutions’ guidelines, and get informed on prevention of the spread of coronavirus, including how to wash hands and wear a protective mask.

The Viber application is also available in English under the name ‘Coronavirus - Guidelines and Quick Assessment’. Creators of the application used recommendations of the RS Institute for Public Health, the World Health Organization and European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, in order to make the application as accurate as possible.
