The Ministry of Health has officially approved the telehealth platform "Speetar" to provide free online health care.

The ministry said that the move comes within the framework of unifying and intensifying efforts among doctors and specialists in the public and private sectors to improve the resilience of the health system in confronting the Coronavirus outbreak.

The app allows citizens to obtain free medical consultations, initial examinations, and a follow-up of their health status amid the quarantine measures imposed by the authorities in response to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The Ministry called on all doctors working in its health institutions to cooperate and register on the app in preparation for its launch.

Speetar platform started off October last year with the goal to connect patients with doctors in various disciplines inside and outside Libya.

Earlier this month, the founders of this project launched the "Speetar COVID-19" in cooperation with the National Center for Disease Control.

The app allows those who suspect having Covid-19 to communicate directly with doctors at the National Center for Disease Control at any time to ask for help and advice.
