UP Launches ISKOnsult, An Online COVID-19 Symptom Checker To Help You Self-Check
In yet another act of kindness and heroism, University of the Philippines created a dashboard that has a comprehensive list of information related to COVID-19—from statistics on local cases to Google drives filled with the policies released by various government agencies.
The UPRI EndCOV dashboard, hosted on endcov.ph, tallies the confirmed, recovered, and deceased COVID-19 cases in the country. It also breaks the data down to how many cases each city in NCR has, how many are in each age group, and how many there are by sex.
The dashboard also provides a list of COVID-19 hospitals, their addresses, and contact information. Currently, their database includes 461 hospitals. There is also an option called ISKOnsult, which is “an online symptom checker that uses the Department of Health’s triage algorithm for COVID-19.” ISKOnsult will ask for your personal information, contact history, as well as symptoms to help you monitor your health. The initiative, however, isn’t meant as a substitute for the actual procedures set up by the government.
Aside from these, the dashboard also compiled Google drives filled with various memorandums and policies related to health, education, economy, and transportation released by the concerned government agencies. There also special tabs with external links to DOH and WHO advisories for those who may have missed the announcements.
