This aarogya setu app tells us if there are any covid-19 patients around us or not. It uses your Smartphone’s Bluetooth and location to tell us that whether you are affected from corona virus or not.
The app shows your risk level in green and yellow codes. It also suggests what you should do. If you are shown in green and told ‘you are safe’ then there is no danger. To avoid corona, you must maintain social distancing and stay at home
If you are shown in yellow and the text says ‘You are very risky’ then you should contact the helpline.
The app works only when you register your mobile number and verify it with OTP. An alternative form also comes which asks about the name, age, occupation and travel abroad during the last 30 days. You can skip this form. However, if you wish to become a volunteer in times of need then you have the option to enroll yourself in it.
And through this app the government would know if you are safe or not because when you install this app, all your information goes to the government in fact your location also goes to the government wherever you go your locations also goes to the government and if you are affected than through this app government will help you.
That’s why government launches this app so they can help us if we are affected from this virus and that’s why government has said that installing this app is important.
This app is also helpful because it tells up to 500 meter 1 kilometer or 10 kilometer that how many people get affected from this virus or how many people get self- assessment test or how many people get his risk.
