The Government of India (The ministry of electronics and IT) finally brings an official application “Aarogya Setu”, which will be tracking on-going global pandemic COVID-19 in India with necessary precautions and safety measures. Aarogya Setu is available country-wide on both Android and iOS and comes with a support for 11 different languages.
The app works immediately after you start using it on your smartphone. It detects the risk of infection and gives user knowledge about his surroundings by providing them with proper information related to a person if he/she has been tested positive for the Coronavirus. The app does all this with the help of user location and Bluetooth, and this database linked with the new Aarogya Setu app helps Government take necessary actions to control the spread of virus by accessing the real time data and ensuring isolation whenever and wherever it’s required.
The app built through public private partnership “assesses themselves the risk for their catching the Corona Virus infection. It will calculate this based on their interaction with others, using cutting edge Bluetooth technology, algorithms and artificial intelligence,” an official statement said.
Once after installing the application, you need to register with your mobile number and thereby provide necessary details which include name, age, profession and any international travel history. This database of users is sent to server’s of government authorities to analyse and respond on real-time basis.
