Truecaller has partnered with MapmyIndia and FactChecker to improve the Covid Healthcare Directory feature. Truecaller is the world’s most trusted and accurate Caller ID and telephone search engine. This feature was made available to all Android users in April 2021, and it will continue to provide easy access to a large set of updated information with the addition of associations.
Over 60,000 Covid-related points of interest are available on MapmyIndia, India’s premier location-based IOT platform, including all vaccination locations around the country, covid designated hospitals, test facilities, and more.
By tapping on the MapmyIndia banner inside Truecaller, users may quickly get information and a map of their location. FactChecker, on the other hand, is India’s first dedicated fact-checking initiative, with a team constantly verifying Covid Relief’s contact numbers. The platform assists people in reaching out to the appropriate contacts in their time of need, allowing patients to receive immediate assistance.
Rohan Verma, CEO & Executive Director, MapmyIndia said that MapmyIndia is fortunate to have Truecaller as a partner in their fight against Covid 19. Truecaller’s 200 million Indian users will be able to find or navigate to covid designated hospitals, test centers, care centers, vaccination centers, and more using the embedded MapmyIndia widget. This partnership can help save lives by providing information at a glance.
