Manila, Philippines, 04 June 2020 – In its efforts to combat COVID-19 across Asia Pacific, Fullerton Health announced today that it has launched its COVID-19 symptom checker on its LiveFuller mobile application platform (“LiveFuller”) in the Philippines. Developed using proprietary commercial technology, the symptom checker will be made available free-for-use for the general public and is intended for general well-being and information purposes in the current environment. During these challenging times, Fullerton Health is fully committed to working in close partnership with governments and civic organisations by making available the company’s resources to assist with alleviating the burden on the public health sector.
In the Philippines, a key challenge during this pandemic is the limited capacity and resources for hospital care, contact tracing, and testing of COVID-19 cases. A digital solution that can streamline patient traffic in hospitals may help augment the surge capacity to treat and test COVID-19 and related cases.
