SMS at the heart of the fight against covid
February 2020, beginning of the health crisis: the State chooses SMS to help it raise awareness among more than 67 million French people. Allowing instantaneous and secure dissemination of information, it appears to be the ideal tool.
We explain how SMS has become central to the fight against COVID and why it is a powerful ally for those seeking safety and performance.
An unprecedented campaign signed by the Government
On November 20, 2020, as businesses reopen, the Ministry of Health decides to raise awareness of health risks. The French should be encouraged to download the #TousAntiCovid application. To do this, 67 million SMS are sent by telecom operators. In the body of the message, a URL link leads directly to the download of the application.

French med-tech on the bridge
Since 18 January, at-risk people over 75 years of age have been joining firefighters and carers over 50 years of age in the "vaccine race" (by appointment only). The French med-tech players are more than ever in demand and are demonstrating their effectiveness in the event of a crisis. Actors that we support, such as Doctolib, Maiia or KelDoc, have been selected as official partners of the State for online appointment booking and management of vaccination centres. Each one uses SMS as a key tool in their communication to confirm and remind patients of appointments.

Informing the public
Immediacy and reliability make SMS thepreferred communication tool in a crisis context. People who test positive for the virus (as well as contact cases) automatically receive an SMS to be informed of the result and the steps to be taken. The SMS makes it possible to manage the epidemic by minimizing contamination and, in fact, the risks associated with VIDOC.
