“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”.

The tool poses a series of questions about symptoms, do you have a cough, a temperature or breathing difficulties), evaluates them regularly and offers instructions and recommendations in accordance with the results.

It also has an optional location function to “better organise the medical resources to obtain a faster and more efficient response in each individual case,” officials said.
