At the epicentre of Spain's coronavirus outbreak, the Madrid region is launching an app to help anyone feeling unwell evaluate their symptoms without ringing the overburdened call centres. Currently available online at www.coronamadrid.com, the tool "will be made available within days as a mobile application", the regional government said on March 19.

"This application aims to help avoid the collapse of the Madrid region's telephone helplines. Carry out this self-test only if you think you're showing symptoms," it said, urging residents to "be responsible".
