COVID-19 Virtual Assistant is a chatbot that can guide you to pre-diagnose if you are infected by SARS-CoV-2, this digital tool uses a knowledge base on mexican protocols to determine if you need medical assistance.
In order to have better results, we got strategic allies on the Instituto Universitario de Ciencias Médicas y Humanísticas de Nayarit, to share a common knowledge base on the epidemiologic control, and to ensure that the virtual assistan can lead to more accurate results.
