MyDoctor launches free 1390 hotline for advice on coronavirus

To make things a lot easier for every Sri Lankan, to consult a doctor during the Coronavirus scare, MyDoctor, in partnership with Ministry of Health, Dialog Axiata PLC and Wavenet Pvt Ltd, has launched a FREE Hotline – 1390 to deliver information and advice on the coronavirus.

Since its initiation months back, the Covid19 Information Hotline has already helped over 100,000 individuals who are predominantly Tamil and Sinhalese speakers, showing the appreciation among local language users.

People might have concerns over other urgent health issues that need prompt medical assistance from a Doctor. The MyDoctor app comes in handy by providing a host of integrated healthcare solutions that can easily be accessed via smartphone. Moreover, MyDoctor is tied up with over 60 partnered pharmacies and 700+ SLMC Registered Doctors. So, getting a video call appointment with a doctor without leaving the house during the prevailing health crisis and curfew is a cinch.

“We are happy to partner with Ministry of Health, Dialog and Wavenet and provide this service to educate the public and control the Corona virus epidemic. We could not only raise awareness among the public, but we also could identify the high risk individuals with symptoms and contact history and immediately connect them with relevant authorities for further action to ensure the safety of themselves as well as the communities they are living in.” Furthermore, he added “We are planning to extend this service for Corona Health Screening together with Ministry of Health Sri Lanka,” said Sameera Wijerathna, CEO, MyDoctor,

“For your urgent health matters, use the MyDoctor app or call the free Covid19 Information Hotline on 1390. Don’t forget to receive the latest corona news/information – both Sri Lankan and Global stats – and to also can carry out free corona screening via the MyDoctor App.”
