Ankush Sabharwal, Founder and CEO, CoRover, Bengaluru shares his views on the ongoing COVID-19 situation
"The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a stir on each one of our lives, bringing uncertainty, psychological stress, health anxiety, social distancing, and financial stress with income and savings on a backburner. The healthcare community is doing a tremendous job during these difficult times.
Burnouts among the healthcare community are nothing but a serious cause of concern. CoRover is doing some amazing work in this space. CoRover has invented the world’s first AI-based Doctor VideoBot addressing the queries about COVID-19 disease transmission and contagion control supported with multi-lingual voice and text formats. AskDoc provides its users with an auto and quick response to any queries about the Coronavirus, along with the safety measures to be followed as per the MHFW, Government of India and WHO guidelines.
Moreover, to help health workers manage burnout, CoRover’s AskDoc helps any user to know all about the COVID-19 pandemic by letting them interact with doctors for free. AskDoc through a video, voice or text interaction can answer anxious queries of users like “Is there a vaccine, drug or treatment for COVID-19?’’ or “How likely am I to catch COVID-19?’ or “Is it safe to eat non-vegetarian food?” It can also help provide the number of active positive, cured & death cases in all the district & states will also be given by the bot.
For all of this, the CoRover team is extensively leveraging Microsoft Azure which takes care of security, reliability, performance and scalability aspects. They provide us with a data center in India, which is the basic requirement for any organization as per the Data Protection Bill, 2018. The Co-Sell team of Microsoft is helping in designing the platform better. Not only this but they also help us to win more business."
