The application also aims to identify contact tracing cases and alert individuals in case they approach or have been in contact with an active case or location.
The iGA chief executive Mohammed Al Qaid said:
“The application aims to protect society which showed its awareness and responded positively to all precautionary measures and preventive protocols. The application has the ability to follow up on suspected cases subjected to the 14-day mandatory quarantine.”
The free application has been tested by hundreds of volunteers and quarantined cases to ensure its efficacy and information provided by the application will be confidential and protected to ensure the privacy of citizens and residents.
