In 2020, I wrote a python programme to make a chatbot.

In 2020,  at the beginniing of coronavirus outbreak in our country, I wrote a python programme to make a chatbot. This chatbot asked some questions to the user. Depending on the answers, it tried to asses if the user had covid-19 infection. It was a relatively new idea that time. Now, this type of chatbots can be seen in action on many healthcare-related websites.

Hardware and Software used:

Python 3 IDLE
Any regular PC or laptop. You can also use a SBC like the Raspberry Pi

Programme:
