San Francisco, Calif., May 14, 2020 — ManyChat, the number one Chat Marketing platform, has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assist with educating the public about COVID-19. The partnership simplifies conversations related to the pandemic, using Messenger from Facebook to automate the sharing of educational materials, including updates and preventative tips. The chat includes materials related to: 

  • How to prevent getting sick
  • COVID-19 symptoms and what to do if you experience them
  • Guidance on face coverings and how to make your own
  • How to disinfect your home and frequently touched surfaces 

“CDC appreciates technology companies’ support to amplify COVID-19 prevention messages nationwide,” said Carol Y. Crawford, Chief of the Digital Media Branch at CDC. “During these challenging times, it is meaningful that CDC recommendations are shared through a wide variety of communication channels.”

This comes on the heels of ManyChat’s partnership with Messenger to help scale COVID-19 efforts. Since inception, the conversations have helped many people navigate through COVID-19. 

“ManyChat is humbled to be a part of this initiative with CDC, and we are incredibly thankful for the tireless work they are doing to help stop the spread,” said Mike Yan, ManyChat CEO and Co-Founder. “We are hopeful that the ongoing education efforts will save lives and help flatten the curve.”
