What is the need are you focusing on?

We plan to have a simple WhatsApp number that links all communities as designated by government of every country. These will supply information among them to the council wards which will in turn have a WhatsApp group each. The leaders of each ward groups would coagulase to form the local government grouping, and that inturn to the state and to the Federal and to the continental and finally to the world Health Organization WHO as the ultimate world head.

A single room or so Veterinary center each will be made available in every ward of every local government area to review whatever submission is being lodged from the community and ward level. While this is going on, the information is already passed to the state, local, federal and Continental/world level. With this, nobody could cover up the health alert from a breaking news of another mutated virus like n-Cov-19.

Which type of submission are you sharing?

  • Sharing an actual pivot your organization has already made

Describe the business pivot or adaptation in 3-4 sentences.

The late Dr. Lee was reportedly 'shouted down' when he tried to alert the world of the new virus. It would have been a different thing entirely if the world has this project of simple pyramidal information dissemination that lodges a health alert through the community to the various levels of government ending with the WHO. Thus, this WhatsApp is created to work it out simultaneously reporting to the local authorities and at the same time having the authentic information submitted to the WHO.
