GOV.UK WhatsApp Service

To ensure communities are receiving factual information during this uncertain time a new Whats App service has been launched, available for free to everyone with the app.

The new service aims to provide official, trustworthy and timely information and advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), and will further reduce the burden on NHS services.

This will help combat the spread of coronavirus misinformation in the UK, as well as helping ensure people stay home, protect the NHS and save lives.

To use the free GOV.UK Coronavirus Information Service on WhatsApp, simply add 07860 064422 in your phone contacts and then message the word ‘hi’ in a WhatsApp message to get started.

The service will also allow the government to send messages to all opted-in users if required.
