So far, Nepal has reported 121 coronavirus positive cases and zero death cases. Currently, 90 patients are undergoing treatment across various hospitals and 31 have recovered.
Coronavirus pandemic is continuing its spread across the world, with 4,195,159 positive cases in 187 countries. A total of 284,022 people has lost their lives due to contagion.
With the sudden surge in the coronavirus cases, the Nepali Government is scrambling for ways to contain the coronavirus spread.
Lately, the government has introduced a ‘COVID-19 Tracing and Tracking App’ to prevent and control the coronavirus in the country.
Deputy PM and Defence Minister Ishwar Pokhrel has inaugurated the COVID-19 mobile app by switching it on from the CCMC-Ops.
People can download the mobile app from the Google play store or by logging in to www.covid19.gov.np.
According to the app design team member Ram Prasad Dhungana, the real-time database-centric mobile application is developed on par with the international standards.
“The mobile app has both the features of tracking and tracing those suspected people who fill-up the form or answer the questions asked by the application,” said Dhungana.
However, the user should switch on Bluetooth in their mobile while using the application so that the user’s real condition can be identified.
The application users will be categorized into green, yellow or red zones as per the details entered by them.
The Ministry of Home Affairs will monitor and store all the data and individual records of the mobile application users at the Government Integrated Data Centre (GIDC).
