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.
