Truecaller has announced its partnership with MapMyIndia and FactChecker to expand its COVID-19 healthcare directory feature. The directory was recently introduced in India. Truecaller COVID-19 healthcare directories let users view extensive COVID-19 information that is updated in real-time. Truecaller had earlier released its COVID-19 healthcare directory feature for beta users and now it has been updated with data sourced and verified from MapMyIndia and FactChecker.
MapMyIndia has an integrated widget under the new Covid Relief tab which lets you view over 60,000 COVID-related locations including hospitals, vaccination centres, test labs, and more. Users can search in their city or can manually enter the name of the city. Meanwhile, FactChecker brings verified contact details of people involved in COVID relief work.
“During these unprecedented times, Truecaller is committed to doing everything possible to extend help to communities and those on the frontlines to battle these challenging times. With this partnership with MapmyIndia and FactChecker, we are hopeful to provide people with some relief with finding the right locations and verified contacts for hospitals, beds, and basic medical facilities. We are optimistic that the new feature will be able to provide some assistance for medical requirements and help our mission of fighting the virus together,” said Rishit Jhunjhunwala, MD India, Truecaller.
