  • With the increase in coronavirus cases even after giving information and lockdown, the government and others have developed "COVID-19" tracking apps that will help people learn, understand and get every information about Corona Virus. Be careful to download the app from confirmed cases like google play store, etc. Some of the apps that are released are:

    1. Corona Kavach: The app is developed by the National e-Governance Division of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to provide information and capture the breakout of coronavirus. The app uses
    geo-traces of the users to get their location and lets them know if they've come in contact with a coronavirus-infected person.

    2. COVID-19: An app by the iPhone maker in association with the Trump administration and federal agencies to release the app for Apple users that will guide people on the disease caused by the coronavirus with the help of the Centers for Disease Control(CCD).

    3. CoWin-20: This is also an app from Niti Aayog, the government's planning commission that is working another critical mobile application CoWin-20 that also uses mobile's GPS. The app will support English and all regional languages of India and help to stop the community spread of coronavirus.

    4. KAWACH: The app is developed by an Electronics Communication and Engineering B Tech student of Lovely Professional University (LPU) along with his professors which will encourage safe social distancing. It can vibrate and glow when someone comes closer than 1 meter (approx. 3.2 feet) distance and even has a handwash reminder, temperature sensor, etc.

    5. Quarantine app: The app is in the developing stage wherein it will have functions such as a self-reporting option, track the patients who are in-home quarantine and patients who are tested positive regularly and will also draw parallels with some of the apps like the Coronamap(developed by South Korea) that will give data of the confirmed cases i.e. the names of the patient and of the hospitals and the patients' travel map i.e. their places of visited before testing positive, etc.

  • COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus, a disease, that is spreading like a chain to humans. In the beginning stage, this started with mild symptoms like runny nose, sore throat, cough, fever, and then it will cause other respiratory illnesses. It can be more severe for some persons can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties. Aged people with pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease patients appear to be more vulnerable if they affected by this virus. It spreads primarily through contact with infected persons through respiratory droplets for example coughs or sneezes, or discharge of saliva from the nose.

    If a person has these symptoms, he has to contact immediately through the app that the government provided. There are many apps available, but one of the best self-reporting apps that government-provided is the "Aarogya setu app". Through this app, the public can ask a number of questions and the user will answer. In case, some of the answers suggest COVID symptoms the data will be immediately sent to the government servers. This information helps the government to take timely steps and to initiate the isolation procedure if necessary. But all have to done after we installed the Aarogya setu app on our mobile phone. This app detects other nearby smartphones that also has the app installed. If some of the contacts are tested positive then it figures out the risk of infection based on sophisticated parameters.

    How does it work:
    The app uses Bluetooth and location data to pinpoint movements. When two people who have installed the app come in close proximity, the app shares the data between the apps in the two phones with each other. If anyone of the app user at risk, it will immediately prompt the other user. Thus it creating awareness among the surrounding people. This calculation is done using Bluetooth, algorithms, and artificial intelligence.

    It also contains recommendations on how to stay safe in-home and also gives a timely update of all COVID-19 cases statewise.

    STAY HOME STAY SAFE.
