A virtual doctor in the UAE is now helping to diagnose flu symptoms

The Ministry of Health and Prevention in the UAE has launched a new service to improve public health.

A virtual doctor has been launched to help diagnose people who have symptoms that could be a sign of COVID-19.

The online service aims to help take the strain off of medical services in the UAE, which are currently busier than usual.

When logging on, the service will ask users a series of questions including travel history, contact with other people, your symptoms and more before making a diagnosis.

At the end, users will either be directed to call 998 or receive alternative advice on proceeding with their illness.

The system is not a substitute for medical emergencies and those who need urgent medical assistance are still advised to visit the nearest A&E department when seeking urgent medical care.

You can access the new virtual doctor by visiting www.mohap.gov.ae.

The Abu Dhabi Department of Health have also recently launched a website to keep residents informed about COVID-19, with updated information and advice. For more information, visit www.doh.saal.ai
