In India, last year WhatsApp partnered with MyGov and Haptik (the Reliance AI platform) to provide every information regarding the Covid-19 virus to Indian citizens. This helped develop the chatbot named MyGov Corona helpdesk. Currently, there are 30 million users of the help desk and the help desk provides details on covid-19 vaccines.

The governments in countries including India, Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, and South Africa have been using such chatbots to connect citizens to correct information. Not only this but 500 thousand medical workers have been registering for their vaccine appointments through the helpline service in the first 5 days of operation.
