How can COVID-19 Update App be beneficial in fighting Coronavirus?
With the look of things, according to WHO, a vaccine for COVI9-19 virus might not be available in the coming months and there seems to be little the world can do with regards to combating the virus if not by the faster response to an emergency. This is the same technique deployed by China in curbing the disease across it 1.7 Million people.
Africa has fewer cases than the rest of the World, and the number of cases is increasing on a daily basis. There are also strong indications that the number of cases might soar in the coming weeks if adequate care is not taken.
COVID-19 Update App enables people to identify early symptoms of the virus using a feature known as self-diagnosis which determines if the person should self isolate or contact emergency hot-lines of their country or state.
Currently, the app provides the emergency lines of all the African Countries, and also hotlines of the states in Nigeria.
The novel app offers safety tips to users, telling them what to do, how to go about quarantine and self isolation and also how to go about washing their hands and protecting themselves.
Other features include Statistics of the Corovirus cases in all the countries of the world and news update to keep you updated on whats happening around your area.
The COVID-19 app is accessible on the official website covid19.app, and is available on android play store for anyone to download and would be released on Apple store in the coming weeks.
