The Saudi Ministry of Health just released a new app to monitor the conditions of people that might have contracted the coronavirus disease). The Tatamman ('rest assured' in Arabic) app enables individuals who are self-quarantine to unlock reliable advice and information on the novel virus and their own health status.
Ministry spokesman, Dr. Mohammed Al-Abd Al-Aly, said: “It (the app) is for those who have the symptoms, or recently returned to Saudi Arabia, those who have been in direct contact with a positive case, as well as those currently under home quarantine as instructed by the ministry.”

Users are able to access their health condition, receive tips, contact medical staff directly, and review the overall ministry services during their isolation period. Available in both Arabic in English, the National Health Emergency Operations Center is in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health and monitors the apps' operations.
Since the health crisis broke out, the ministry of health has undergone a major digitization: 120 services are now a click away, are all available through Najiz platform, and have helped over 300,000 people so far. Check out KSA's Mawid app to self-assess your health and receive proper guidance!
