The levels of the disease are Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 where each has a different solution based on the level of the disease suffered. In the system there is information about MERS-CoV in the form of videos and writings. The system has been built using the PHP programming language. After testing, the results show that all system functionality has been fulfilled. Based on the results of expert validation obtained at 76.7%, which is good in diagnosing MERS-CoV disease and the results of the questionnaire obtained an average of 84.13% which is very good in helping users in diagnosing disease.
