The company has also introduced an ‘Information and help centre’ to provide information on coronavirus verified by the government and health authorities.

Under this section, the app offers self-assessment scanning powered by Apollo 24/7, a screening app created by Apollo Hospitals. This scanning feature is based on guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Union Health Ministry.

However, users are asked to not take this scan as expert medical advice and to visit a doctor if they show symptoms of COVID-19. The scan only helps people know how likely they are to contract the virus.

Apart from these, the company is asking users for contribution to the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM-CARES) on the app. Paytm has already announced that it is aiming at contributing Rs 500 crore to the fund.
