CovidHelpBot Twillio Hackathon Submission

What I built

I built a chatbot that Helps in relieving the stress of health workers by helping people know their present covid-19 status and advises them on what to do based on their answers. It provides people with live updates of the virus across over 100+ countries, and also enlightens people on the most common FAQ's and myths around the covid-19 virus.
