Covid-19 in Croatia: Virtual doctor


published on 22 April 2020 | reading approx. time 1 minute


Croatia launched its first digital assistant to advise people how to diagnose and manage suspected Covid-19 infections.


This "virtual doctor", powered by artificial intelligence, has been developed by Croatian IT companies in cooperation with epidemiologists. It is available at and can be activated on WhatsApp under the name Andrija.

The digital assistant "Andrija" is named after Andrija Stampar, a distinguished Croatian doctor and scholar in the field of social medicine. From 1931 to 1933, Stampar worked as an expert of the Health Organization of the League of Nations.

The online health self-assessment tool is available to all Croatian smart phone users. The companies that have participated in the development of the application worked free of charge on this project, aimed at combating the spread of the coronavirus.
