Ghanaian SHS graduate invents COVID-19 “Self-checker” chatbot app

A Senior High School (SHS) graduate who developed an application that allows patients to buy medication without visiting the pharmacy, says he has invented a COVID-19 “self-checker” chatbot app.

Mustapha Zaidan and his team developed the technology named ‘Abbey’ which enables individuals to quickly determine if they may have the virus.

Mustapha explained that it would reduce the burden on health officials attending to people at medical facilities to better understand the seriousness of symptoms.

“It’s important to note, however, that Abbey is not intended to diagnose any possible conditions, including COVID-19 infections,” he says.
